Dinosaur National Monument Quarry Tickets

Dinosaur National Monument

Due to Covid-19, Dinosaur National Monument will be managing the number of visitors entering the Quarry Exhibit Hall on a daily basis to avoid overcrowding of interior spaces. Timed tickets will be required for all visitors traveling between the Quarry Visitor Center to the Quarry Exhibit Hall. Transportation between the two buildings is by driving up in personal vehicles or hiking on the Fossil Discovery Trail. Visitors are encouraged to wear facial coverings while inside the Quarry Exhibit Hall and Quarry Visitor Center. Social distancing is encouraged inside buildings and throughout the park.

The Quarry Exhibit Hall is constructed over the world-famous Carnegie Dinosaur Quarry. The Quarry Exhibit Hall allows visitors to view a sandstone wall that contains approximately 1,500 dinosaur bones. From the Quarry Exhibit Hall, you can gaze upon the remains of numerous different species of dinosaurs including Allosaurus, Apatosaurus, Camarasaurus, Diplodocus, and Stegosaurus along with several others. Exhibits, including an 80-foot long mural, reveal the story of these animals and many others that lived in the Morrison environment during the late Jurassic. 

All visitors, including children age three and older, will need a ticket to visit the Quarry. Children age two and under do not need a ticket. You may reserve up to 8 tickets per day.

Dinosaur National Monument charges an entrance fee to enter the park. All visitors are required to pay the entrance fee by credit card or cash. The monument will honor annual and lifetime passes for entry including: Dinosaur National Monument Annual Pass, Interagency Annual Pass, Interagency Senior Pass, Interagency Access Pass, Interagency Volunteer Pass, Interagency Military Pass, Interagency 4th Grade Pass. Dinosaur National Monument also accepts site-specific digital entry passes purchased from Recreation.gov. If you have one of these passes, you will not need to pay for entry into the monument, but you will need to have your pass available at the Quarry Visitor Center for verification. All pass holders will still need to obtain Quarry tickets before visiting the Quarry.  

Ticket Times

• Tickets will be available in 30 minute blocks between 9 a.m. and 4 p.m. daily. Please be prompt and ready to depart the Quarry Visitor Center and enter the Quarry Exhibit Hall within the 30 minute entry window on your ticket.
