Thomas Condon Paleontology Center
Contructed in 2003, the Thomas Condon Paleontology Center is the best place to see fossils at the monument. Here, fossils from all three units of the park, as well as those from other federal lands in the area, are on display for visitors to see up close. The photo gallery below provides a glimpse of what visitors can see on a visit to the museum.
