  • The museum is built on a actual dinosaur archeological site. Worth seeing if you have interest or have kids with interest.  more »
  • This is a small but interesting stop. You could buzz through this museum and think, 'that was stupid", but if you take the time to read the plaques, and information, it really has a lot of cool stuff....  more »

  • Really enjoyed visiting this museum built around a site of dinosaur tracks. The tracks are really well preserved, the presentation is extremely good and very factual. Their displays comparing the bone structure of dinosaurs to modern birds and how that led to insights on how dinosaurs walked was truly fascinating. The staff are friendly and really recommend visiting this museum on the way to Zion.
  • This is an amazing little dinosaur museum with lots of cool artifacts. This place is great for kids and dinosaur enthusiasts alike. I would definitely recommend this place to anyone stopping in St George. I also found the Doctor Who Police Call Box on one of the paintings very amusing. What a wonderful place.
  • Excellent. Thought this was going to be kitchy, not at all. It was an excellent exhibit with so much to learn. The two docents were amazingly knowledgeable. Great for all ages.
  • This place is really neat. I love dinosaurs, and was hesitant when we pulled up and saw how small the building is. It really is small, but it's packed full of cool exhibits and TONS of tracks. We stopped and read every sign and every description along the way. I didn't think the tracks were going to be that cool, but the museum staff has done a great job laying out their displays to make them fun with maps and layouts of the exhibits so you can try and spot the tracks! Really informative, educational, and entertaining. I actually wished for a minute I had kids to bring with me, because that would be SO FUN! I wish it was a little bigger to be honest, but I feel it's worth the $6 adult entry.
  • It is a small building but it is packed with information and fossils. The price is extremely reasonable. My family of 2 adults and 2 kids was only $18 total ($6 adults, $3 for kids, 3 and under free). My 4 and 5 year old loved it. It was fascinating watching them actually work on uncovering fossils. Great little stop. If you have the time, stop by!
