Dinosaur Museum in Woodland Park, Colorado
I discovered a gem in my own back yard. It is the Rocky Mountain Dinosaur Resource Center. http://www.rmdrc.com/
I assumed, for 5 years, that it was just a tourist trap for people going up into the mountains after leaving Colorado Springs. It is truly is a diamond. It easily competes, regarding paleontology exhibits and information, with the Denver Museum of Natural History and they are very good. Obviously, it is not a competition for Chicago and New York museums but the exhibits are excellent. They also have a very good Charles Darwin exhibit.
