The Visitor Center at the C-LDQ, which became a United States Natural Landmark in 1968, has some interesting graphics that interpret and detail the operation and history of the Quarry. Included in the exhibits are some prepared, original dinosaur bones, and a mounted free- standing skeleton of a medium-sized Allosaur, which consists of less than 50% of the original, fossil bones. The skull of the Allosaur can be seen through the window in the front of the building.
