Photo: The mission of the Dakota Dinosaur Museum is to promote tourism by providing a facility for preservation and display of geological and paleontological specimens for public review and education.
Photo: The museum was first proposed in 1987 and it opened in 1994. The 13,400-square-foot museum is run by volunteers. The museum contains dinosaur replicas that were made by a company in Utah together with artists from Texas and North Dakota. Most of the artifacts in the museum were donated by Larry and Alice League.
