The Fossil Museum near Udon Thani is rather small and rather unspectacular, and perhaps only really worthwhile visiting en route to somewhere else in the general direction. It is loosely called a ‘Dinosaur Park’ with shells and fossils but the reality is that you should not get too excited. The museum features fossils of shells from the Jurassic period, which dateback to 140 – 150 million years ago, or thereabouts. In the nearby area, some 60 dinosaur fossils can be seen in the layer of siltstone, just above the layer where the fossils of shells and ancient crocodiles are found.
