If you are ever traveling in Black Hills of South Dakota and Mouth Rushmore a visit to the Black Hills Institute in Hill City is a must. Not very large, their museum is full of dinosaurs they collected mostly in the Hell Creek and other local items including invertebrates.

A few T rex skulls and skeletons

Thanks for all the great museum pictures. I've never been to any of them but I hope to some day.

It's not big but they have lots of skeletons on top of one another. They really need more space.

Thanks for posting Frank.

Btw for those of you interested in the history of the Black Hills Institute (and more specifically Peter Larson) as it relates to "Sue", there is a movie that was released in 2014 called "Dinosaur 13". It's a great watch.

Is the carnotaurus skull in the first picture a replica or a real one? It's a pretty cool skull either way.

Boy, that Tylosaurus skull is so cool - and the aigialosaur as well. Thanks for posting these :) 

 

P.S. Wasn't aware of a Russian L. ferox . I thought their remains were confined to western Europe?

May not have been formally studied yet, considering they have the original.

The marine display is wonderful, and a little eerie as well. Especially that second photo.
