The Tate Geological Museum was founded in 1980 and houses a collection of over 6,000 fossil and mineral specimens.

The mission of the Tate Geological Museum is to provide educational resources to the community, researchers, and visitors. The Tate’s position as a regional earth science education center is maintained by exhibits, educational programs, active collecting, and collections preservation.

The Tate is open Monday through Saturday from 10 a.m.-4 p.m. and is located on the Casper College campus.
