WELCOME TO THE AURORA FOSSIL MUSEUM
Our Spring/Summer 2022 Hours of Operation are:
Tuesday - Sunday 9:30 am to 4:00 pm
We will be closed on Easter Sunday (04/17/2022), Independence Day (July 4th), and Labor Day (09/05/2022)
We are closed on Mondays for routine maintenance.
Although admission is free for both the museum and fossil park (where the pits are located), we appreciate donations and purchases in our gift shop to help with our operating costs (employee wages, utilities, park/grounds/building maintenance, security, etc.).
When you arrive at the museum, please park in our parking lot and check in at the museum. We like to welcome everyone and visitor count is crucial for a nonprofit.
Please follow the park rules that are posted in various locations in the park.
Screen size maximum is 12 inches x 12 inches,
no large shovels/digging tools (handles have to be less than 36 inches).
A garden trowel and/or small garden rake work best.
The pits are outside; one in full sun, one in shade. Sunscreen and protective sun shade gear are recommended.
Picnic tables are available for picnic lunches.
The Aurora Fossil Museum is excited to welcome visitors to Aurora, North Carolina and we ask that you please follow all safety guidelines in place during your visit.
