Established in 1866, this museum is nationally recognized for its public exhibits and collections as well as research and graduate education. Permanent exhibits include fossils of dinosaurs, mammals, reptiles, fish, and birds. The museum is also home to Comanche – the horse that was the only U.S. Army survivor of the Battle at the Little Bighorn, and Annabelle, an impressive 50-foot-long, 140-million-year-old camarasaurus dinosaur. Annabelle was found in Wyoming along with an adult male and baby camarasaurus, the first discovery of such a family grouping.
