“Where more than bones are preserved...”
In 2003, a local group of community members in Malta, Montana formed a nonprofit organization in order to care for the unique dinosaur discoveries of Phillips County. They rented a tire shop in Malta and converted it into the Dinosaur Field Station, a preparatory lab where the dinosaur fossils of the area were cleaned and studied. For five years the facility housed numerous specimens and welcomed scientists and the general public alike. In 2006, the state of Montana approved funding for the creation of the Great Plains Dinosaur Museum and the planning began. The Dinosaur Field Station closed in the spring of 2008 and the specimens were moved to the new museum. The Great Plains Dinosaur Museum and Field Station opened to the public on June 6, 2008.
