SHERIDAN, Wyo - Hundreds of rare dinosaur fossils are housed at the Museum of Discovery at Sheridan College in northern Wyoming.

Mike Flynn is a former Sheridan College geology instructor and current curator of geology at the Museum of Discovery.

Flynn says most of the dinosaur remains found at a nearby quarry are more than 100 million years old.

He says there are about 300 different bone specimens stored at the college.

The museum does not have a full-time curator or regular hours, and is usually locked throughout the week.

However, there are plans to move some of the artifacts to other campus buildings in order to increase their public exposure.
