Dickinson Museum Center

A place where you will lose track of time.

From pre-history to the present, this 12-acre museum campus offers an illuminating and entertaining experience for visitors of all ages. The Museum Center features dinosaur exhibits, heritage exhibits, classes and demonstrations, educational programming and special events.

Visit the natural history museum to see thousands of fossil and mineral specimens, including a complete triceratops skeleton excavated in the region. The White River mammals are also featured in the dinosaur museum, as well as glow-in-the-dark fluorescent minerals.

Walk the timeline regional museum to learn about the people who lived in the area and their ways of life. From the first inhabitants to the sodbusters, oilfield roughnecks, and business-minded entrepreneurs, the steadfast spirit of the west lives on in the history of its people.

Focusing on homesteaders, the Pioneer Machinery Building houses the early farm and home equipment that helped the pioneers survive in a new and often harsh environment. A short walk up the hill opens the way to Prairie Outpost Park with its original and reproduction buildings. Visit the Northern Pacific Railway Depot, the pioneer house, the North Dakota Herold newspaper print shop, the general store, the fieldstone farm house, the one-room school and prairie church, and much more. Guided tours are available during the summer months. The park is a lovely place to relax, picnic, and learn more about the area and its history.
