Frequently Asked Questions

When will the Quarry Exhibit Hall reopen?

October 4, 2011. For more information click here.

I heard that the Quarry Visitor Center is no longer part of the same building as the Quarry Exhibit Hall?

That is correct. Leaking water lines played a role in the bentonite soil expansion that badly damaged the former visitor center/quarry. The new visitor center is now located 1/2 mile down the hill from the quarry on a more stable soil layer. The quarry visitor center is open but the Quarry Exhibit Hall is closed until October 4th, 2011.

Most of Dinosaur National Monument's 210,000 acres is proposed wilderness. With proper planning, a backcountry trip at Dinosaur can be a wonderful experience of solitude and serenity.
