“Science Center and Mineralogical Museum”

The Tate Geological Museum was founded in 1980 through a gift from Marion and Inez Tate. It was originally designated as the Tate Earth Science Center and Mineralogical Museum. Because ‘geological' encompasses earth science, mineralogy and paleontology, the name was changed to the Tate Geological Museum in 2001. Located on the Casper College campus, the museum is a great resource to the community. Many local schools and groups come to the museum to add to their students learning experience.One of a minute number of geology and paleontology museums in Wyoming, the Tate houses a collection of over 3000 fossil and mineral specimens. Museum staff are always on hand to answer questions, help identify items visitors bring in, and make your visit to the museum an enjoyable experience. The Tate is certainly a great addition to anyone's list of 'must see sites' when traveling through Wyoming.

Don’t use Roadtrippers to navigate to, it took us to the wrong location and once we found it they were closed. Not RV friendly roads or parking.

Great quick stop if you are in the area. Lots to look at for a small space. It’s FREE, donation asked. Little kids play area, nice gift shop, bathrooms. Bonus, there is a little free library, leave a book-take a book.
