We stopped here to break up a long day of driving (and after reading a favorable review from AAA). Our only regret was only having one hour to spend in this fantastic museum. Exhibits were very well done; lots of full reproductions of skeletons. What sets this dino museum apart from the rest is the large room devoted to dinosaurs... More

What a random find! Full disclosure, I love dinosaurs, so I'm already somewhat of a captive audience. We were driving through on our way from one national park to another, and decided to stop, expecting a roadside curiosity. This is a highly professional collection of both actual paleontologist specimens and dinosaur pop culture. The latter is primarily due to the... More

This was an excellent museum for everyone. Exhibits were well lighted, easy to read displays, offering new updated theories on dinosaur evolution. Price was extremely low and easily affordable. Has to be one of the best anywhere! We were truly impressed! Thanks!

We "discovered" this via a billboard and, honestly, were not expecting much. The directions were a bit haphazard and we almost bailed. So GLAD we did not. What a find. A FANTASTIC museum devoted to doings. High levels of detail in the write ups around all the exhibits, and some really surprising items in the collection, such as the original... More

Inexpensive for the entire family to enter, the kids had a blast looking at all the dinosaurs. The sweet old lady at the front desk was just darling. One of the things I loved was that the gift shop wasn't filled with a bunch of REALLY expensive items....there were little trinkets that my 5 year old could buy with all... More

We found this place by accident; we took a detour to Blanding to clean all the Utah mud from our wheels and grabbed some food whilst we were there. On the way out, we spotted the sign and thought we should pop in... and we are glad we did. The dinosaurs are amazing and there's so many of them... big... More

This is a surprisingly good museum that is locally funded. The displays and accompanying descriptions are excellent. There are a number of displays relative to when or where in the tree of life reptiles and birds branched off from the dinosaur tree. This is a fairly large museum and worth a couple of hours. It is on a side street... More

We stopped in to The Dinosaur Museum to let the kiddos exert some energy during a long road trip. PERFECT! The exhibits are very life like (actually scared my little one (3) just a bit). Friendly, personable staff and not stuffy and crowded. Highly recommend!

Just the right size. The dinosaurs and dinosaur parts on display are set up in interesting ways. A good place to take youngsters as it has plenty of space for them to wiggle and giggle. Information is concise and easily understandable.

It was very interesting but everything was scattered around in odd rooms and hallways with no real "flow" making it hard to enjoy what you are seeing. I found myself ignoring a lot of things and being more worried about what room or hallway I'm supposed to go to next. The pieces are very interesting and educational, I did learn... More
