Mesalands Dinosaur Museum

Museum in Tucumcari

This engaging museum showcases all manner of prehistoric beasts, from ferocious 40ft crocodiles to battling saber-tooth cats and the T-Rex-like Torvosaurus. Dinosaur bones are cast in bronze, which not only shows fine detail, but also makes them works of art. There are plenty of hands-on exhibits for kids; one ancient monster is even fitted with a saddle for photo opportunities.
