PRI has a world-class collection, containing everything from dinosaur eggs from China to one of the most comprehensive Paleozoic trilobite, brachipod, coral, and crinoid collections in the United States.
Take a tour of some of our most prized specimens. Information about each specimen is also provided, so you don't just get to look, you get to learn!
PRI's Database currently encompases the Type and Figured Specimen collection, which is the tenth largest of its kind in the country.
Exercises created here will give you a bit of "hands-on" experience with the rocks that will help explain why fossils are so important to us after all.
