Welcome to the Dinosaur Discovery Museum
The Dinosaur Discovery Museum in Kenosha, Wisconsin, is the only museum to focus on the link between meat-eating dinosaurs and birds, one of the most complete known fossil records. In association with the Carthage Institute of Paleontology (CIP) and its on-site laboratory, the Dinosaur Discovery Museum presents current, ongoing research in the study of dinosaurs. The Dinosaur Discovery Museum collaborates with the CIP in dinosaur research, field work, and education programs. This includes the collection and preservation of dinosaur specimens for its research collections.
