Welcome to the "Home of the Missouri Dinosaur." Our exhibits include a life-size model of the Hypsibema missouriense, a variety of dinosaur called a hadrosaur or "duck billed" dinosaur, with jaws that contained more than 1,000 teeth. The dinosaur was discovered in Bollinger County in 1942; in 2004 it became Missouri's official dinosaur.
The museum houses dinosaur fossils and artifacts from around the world; a fossil preparation lab; Will Mayfield College memorabilia; Civil War ballistics; American Indian artifacts; a digitized presentation of historic local photographs; wireless radio development; artifacts from the wreck of the Steamboat Montana; and a children's fun and educational room.
Our museum makes its home in the Art and Science building of the former Will Mayfield College campus, overlooking the foothills of the ancient Ozark Mountains. Beautiful architecture and educational history placed our building on the National Register of Historic Places in 2005.
Admission: Adults $5; 17 and younger, $2.
