  • I don't have kids - so all I can say is there are a lot of kids here that seem to be having a good time. And - there are so many kid oriented exhibits. The older kids probably enjoy the skeletons and ...  more »

  • A fun museum with neat exhibits! Such a great way to spend an afternoon. We have been going here as a fun trip since I was a little kid! I took away one star because the museum seems to be getting a little run down and outdated. Some maintenance would be a great idea.
  • My kids have fun when we go. I think the staff is nice. There was a lady who was working on uncovering fossils and she talked with us for awhile about how the process goes which was interesting. It's been really nice lately, maybe a bit dusty at times but it is fun. It only takes about an hour and you can see and do everything.
  • This is not a huge museum, but it's a nice one. It's a fun place for younger kids to explore, have fun, and learn about dinosaurs. There's lots of information about dinosaurs that were in this area of the country.
  • Not as I remember it. We were in last week on vacation and it needs to be upkept. The mechanical dinosaurs are falling apart and ripping. The 9 dollar entrance fee was pretty over priced for how much of the museum has fallen apart. The earthquake machine bairly worked and most exhibits needed a major repair done. The gift shop was also pretty poor unfortunately. My father in law suggest a museum in moab so we will probably just make the extra drive. I hope this museum gets the dinosaurs fixed so it's worth the time and money.
  • Great museum for it's size! Pay no attention to Google for hours. See museum website.
