  • Very impressive collection of bones. Enter from the top level by using the exterior ramp. The upper level entrance offers the greatest Wow factor upon entering. Follow up your visit with the automobile self guided tour by making a left at the intersection that would take you out of the park and be sure to pick up the guide map just after the left turn. Information in the paper guide as well as signage at each of the stops provides more information about the unique topography of the Monument.
  • The exhibit hall is such a unique experience. The tool marks are still in the rock. The nice thing is that it is a fairly quick experience so it can be fun for the kids to have a glance and then those that love to read/explore all the exhibits can do so without feeling rushed. There is a lot of different opportunities to explore at Dinosaur National Monument but if time is limited the quarry makes for a great flavor of Vernal historical excitement.
  • With a wall of hundreds of dinosaur bones, and some you can even touch, The Quarry is a fun, and educational adventure. Learning about the Earth and it's inhabitants is tons of fun for any age. The surrounding landscape really sets the stage for being tossed back into prehistoric times.
  • Awesome place to visit for all ages. You can spend 5 minutes or a couple hours here even though it's not huge because it's so unique and fascinating. They also have guided dinosaur bone nature walks starting here if you'd like to do that. I don't know if anywhere else that lets you touch real full size dinosaur fossils.
  • Not a dinosaur nut but seeing all the bones still entombed in the rocks was amazing. Mind blowing to understand and whole earth/dinosaur /human time line. Humans are just a spec of the earth's history. Recommend
