  • Been a few years since we been here, not much has changed as a matter of fact, I can't think of really anything different except they took away an upstairs portion they used to have for snacks/parties...  read more »
  • Fantastic little museum. Great for kids and adults. Family admission price is $25 for the group. Plan to spend about an hour sizing up giant dinosaurs and experiencing an earthquake. 
  • We got in for half price day, and were very happy with what we got for that price. Had we paid full price, we might not have felt like it was worth it. We enjoyed the exhibits, and especially the interactive nature of the museum. The kids loved the earthquake simulator and the animatronic dinosaurs. T-rex was our favorite.
  • Great for younger kids to explore local dinosaurs, animated models are fun too. The kindergarten class I was with enjoyed themselves, especially the earthquake and spitting dinosaur. They were just adding a new T-Rex model that day along with lots of volunteers working on fossils. If you were traveling through Utah and wanted a place to get out I would stop here then get lunch near by or use the park.
  • This is a great place to come and learn about dinosaurs. They have a movie about the fossil find in the area as well a bunch of dinosaur exhibits. They have moving dinosaur mock ups, an earthquake simulator, and interactive displays about water flow and fossil excavation The gift shop had plenty of dinosaur themed items
  • Fun place to visit and we got in free! Kids really enjoyed it, nice diversion while on a road trip.
  • Great place to bring the kids to have some fun! There are some HUGE dinosaur's that move, spray water at you, a water table it's just a blast!
