This might be your last chance to tour the Roynon Museum of Paleontology before it closes its doors on June 30th.
The Roynon Museum of Paleontology was established in 2000 as a 501c(3) non-profit foundation. The Foundation’s primary purpose is to educate students, scouts, and the general public in earth sciences, as well as to emphasize the meaning of the sequence of life throughout geological time.
The museum is a plethora of knowledge brought about by way of the thousands of specimens that have been acquired throughout the years bringing into focus the overall picture of paleontology. Mr. and Mrs. Roynon add specimens to the museum each year on their travels throughout the United States.
