Along the Dinosaur Trail
A part of the Montana Dinosaur Trail, Garfield County Museum displays represent the massive contributions that Garfield County has made to the science of paleontology.
In the Cretaceous sediments of the badlands along the Missouri River, paleontologists have made some of the first and most important fossil finds in modern history. Just after the turn of the century, Dr. Barnum Brown of the American Museum of Natural History found the first Tyrannosaurus Rex in the Hell Creek area north of Jordan.
Each summer there are various digs occurring in the area. If you would like to watch or participate in a dig, check with one of the museum guides or call Judy Lervick at 557-2226.
