About Us

The Museum of Western Colorado is headquartered in Grand Junction and is accredited by the American Association of Museums. We have several major facilities: The Museum of the West, Cross Orchards Historic Farm, Dinosaur Journey, History Museum/ Smith Educational Tower and the Whitman Education Center. The Loyd Files Research Library and the administrative offices are located in the Museum of the West. Riggs Hill, Dinosaur Hill and the Rabbit Valley Research Natural Area are the Museum’s outdoor sites.

In addition, the Museum of Western Colorado offers summer Dinosaur Excavations for youngsters and their families in the dinosaur-rich Morrison Formation near Fruita, Colorado. We are also home of the Western Investigations Team, solving some of the West's most interesting mysteries and questions.
