JENSEN — The National Park Service is hosting a ribbon-cutting ceremony to dedicate the new Quarry Exhibit Hall at Dinosaur National Monument.

The new 10,500-square-foot visitor center and exhibit hall features a 50-foot high, 150-foot-long cliff with about 1,500 dinosaur bones.

The exhibit has been closed since 2006 due to structural damage. The re-opening ceremony is set for 11 a.m. Tuesday at the park near Jensen.

Dinosaur National Monument also celebrates its 96th anniversary on Tuesday. The original 80-acre monument was created in 1915 to preserve extraordinary deposits of dinosaur fossils.
