Mission Statement

The Museums of Western Colorado inspires and connects our community by championing the scientific and cultural heritage of the Colorado Plateau.


Thanks to the past support from our community, the Museums of Western Colorado (MWC) has become the largest multi-disciplinary museum complex between Salt Lake City and Denver. It includes three major museum facilities - Cross Orchards Historic Site, Dinosaur Journey Museum, and the Museum of the West; and four outdoor paleontology sites. We offer a multitude of programs and services including dinosaur expeditions and gift shops. Annually, over 100,000 people visit museum facilities and participate in our programs. The MWC is one of the most significant cultural institutions on the Western Slope and one of the most popular tourist destinations in Mesa County.
