We stumbled upon The Dinosaur Museum while passing through Blanding, Utah. This place was great!!! Much larger than I expected, and very educational. I saw things here that I hadn't seen in other museums. I am 34, and my boyfriend is 41. No children with us on this trip, and we totally enjoyed this place. Learned so much. We were... More

This was a great place to take the kids. Even my girls, who are not big dinosaur fans, loved it!! There is something for everyone to learn. The exihibits are great. Totally enjoyable afternoon for all of us. Fun and educational!! They had a nice gift shop (as my kids (ages 9-11) feel it is very important to buy a... More

Museum has very unique things about dinosaurs that you don't see in most museums. They had cool artwork about early depictions of dinosaurs, a unique collection of movie posters of dinosaur movies, and an exhibit that explored the question of if dinosaurs had feathers. Way cool place for kids and adults alike!

What a surprise to find this gem! We had no idea what to expect when we stopped but were absolutely amazed at the treasures on display. Original art work by Charles R. Knight, movie posters from the original Godzilla to say nothing of the world-class dinosaur fossils on display. This is well worth the visit!

Awesome museum! A must stop in Blanding. Kids and adults loved the dinosaurs. The movie posters were a welcome and unexpected surprise. We almost didn't stop because the museum looked closed and deserted when we drove into the parking lot. Thank goodness we we didn't follow our first instinct. Well worth the time. All four kids, ages 6 - 17,... More

Blanding is only a small dot on the map on the way to Monument Valley but STOP there and go to the Dinosaur Museum. From the outside it looks a bit like a barn but inside it is amazing. The dinosaur models are so life like. You can discover the REAL relationship between dinosaurs and birds. They also have "Dinosaurs... More

If you, or your children, have ANY interest in dinosaurs whatsoever, you MUST add this to your to do list! This was a very pleasant surprise, and there was a lot to see and do there. The admission fee is very reasonable, the gift shop is very cute and we found lots of goodies there, and the museum itself is... More

Quite honestly, I was pleasantly surprised how good a museum it was for a small town like Blanding. Entry fee was $5, which is dirt cheap for the things you see in this museum. I guess not many people know about it as I and my wife were the only ones visiting. I got to know about this museum when... More

There is so much information here that it will boggle the mind. Stop by and see if you can find new information about feathered dinosaurs, etc.
