This museum turned out to be so much more than I expected. There were fossils and replicas of fossils. Storyboards told the history of the dinosaurs. There were several I had never heard of. A whole area talked about the many movies that have been made over time that featured dinosaurs to include a film shot. I learned a great... More

We have been several times, usually taking someone new who is visiting. The year we are buying a season pass because the kids enjoy it so much. The cost is very reasonable.

Unfortunately can't review because the place was closed. According to their website they were supposed to be open. Should have given more details.

Whist we were travelling in Utah as part of a National Parks tour we were passing Blanding Utah and our guide told us about a small dinosaur museum he had heard about. We decided to detour to visit it. After a couple of abortive attempts we found the museum. And wow - what a find! This is not a dry... More

This unexpected gem is a must-see. It is large and very well-done, a mix of spectacular life-sized dinosaur reconstructions and dinosaur movie memorabilia. See how stop-action was filmed. Enjoy the many movie posters and some models. See how dinosaurs appear in old comic books. Learn from the exhibits about feather development, the bird-dinosaur connection and more. Shop for books and... More

Before we left this Lil town of Blanding, we stopped here. Best $3.50 (per adult) spent at a museum! Mostly dinosaur memorabilia from over the years but it was really cool. Especially the movie part. There wasn't so many fossils but we still had a great time.

Talk to the staff, don't be afraid to ask questions, they're very informative! It is a pretty good size museum. There was an exhibit that had a display of birds with feathers, beautifully done. It took me a good hour, hour and a half to go through. I would revisit if I am in the area again.

We stopped here on our way between Monument Valley and Mesa Verde. The kids loved this, as they all love dinosaurs. It was interesting. Kind of hot in some parts of it (July 2013). Very educational and a nice break from driving.

My children really liked the museum. Very interesting displays and artifacts to see. Fairly inexpensive way to pass an hour or two with kids.

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
