Our ultimate goal is to establish a permanent brick-and-mortar natural history museum to serve the needs of our area. In the meantime, we will be working with communities and educational facilities such as schools, libraries, and museums to make our pieces as available as possible through loan programs, our traveling museum, and presentations given by our curator Bradly Shelby. Our presentations are free of charge, so if you would be interested in more information about what we can offer then please feel free to contact us.
Our full museum setup currently stretches over 100 feet long and covers varying dinosaurs from their earliest beginnings up until their extinction at the end of the Mesozoic. If space is an issue we can also bring individual exhibit setups to fit any size- some of our most popular alone exhibits are our Tyrannosaurus, Triceratops, Dromaeosaurs (Raptors!), and Dinosaur Egg displays.
Here at the Four State Museum of Natural History, we believe in our motto of The Past Belongs to Everyone. As part of the our mission, we strive to offer engaging learning opportunities in the earth and life sciences to classrooms, libraries, and any facilities who are interested in advancing scientific literacy in our communities. Almost all of our educational programs and activities provide children and adults with a chance to get hands-on with science, engaging the learners in everyone.
Our paleontology programs can easily be tailored to suit your needs- from Pre-K to adults and everyone in between. The wonders of the ancient world have generously provided us with unlimited opportunities for learning and exploration that are suitable for people of every age and level of education. For questions, contact our Curator Bradly Shelby at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Your support and contributions will enable us to meet our goals, improve our displays, and provide more outreach to the community. 100% of all donations are used directly for the furtherance and upkeep of our exhibits. If you are interested in donating items to the museum instead, please contact us.
