Active site of historic Indian relics and pre-historic artifacts dating back over 11,000 years.
Established in the 1990s, this University of Wyoming High Plains Educational Project includes the Archaeology museum at 2nd and Pine Street and the actual Archaeology dig which is located west of the Pine Bluffs Rest Area. The museum houses artifacts taken from the dig site area and walks the visitor through the history of the area. The archaeologists at the dig site show visitors how the artifacts are uncovered and explains how each artifact is handled after it is found. There is a concrete pathway from the Rest Area to the dig site for those who enjoy some exercise after a long journey.
Hours vary; call in advance.
