    Well organized museum for all ages with colorful life size recreations of dinosaurs. Video and Hands on displays explaining the process of digging for and identifying bones. Big wall mural showing a timeline of the rock formations within geological eras. Can spend 2-4 hours here.

    We enjoyed pretty much every aspect of our stay in Vernal, where we made the rounds throughout Dinosaur National Monument. The Field House rounded off our trip. My family and I enjoyed it. It has a good amount of local fossils on display (the Stegosaurus fossils were amazing).

    Nice visit for the kids. Price a bit steep for this small town place and the exhibits are okay compared to the big city but nice enough for a companion to the Dinosaur National Park. Hit this one first then head out to the National Park

    Loved this place with our 2 young children. They even had a nice children's area where we say for a while and just let the kids play. My 3 year old LOVED the outdoor dinosaur garden.

    Lots of fun stuff to look at. The kids enjoyed it and it was nice to be out of the sun during the hot parts of the day.
