about us

The World Fossil Finder Museum (WFFM) is a 501(c)(3) non-profit educational institution in Hot Springs, SD. Seated in the beautiful Southern Black Hills, the Museum was founded in 2018 by Frank & Deborah Garcia to share the private collections and discoveries of Amateur Paleontologist Frank Garcia.


The dream and vision of the museum has expanded and evolved into a museum that collects, preserves, and displays both local and international fossils. The WFFM puts on display the findings of amateur paleontologists and their contributions to science while opening its doors for collection research, exhibits, educational programs, and more.
