Dinosaurs once roamed here. Their fantastic remains are still visible...

Dinosaurs once roamed here. Their fantastic remains are still visible embedded in the rocks. Today, the mountains, desert and untamed rivers flowing in deep canyons, support an array of life. Petroglyphs hint at earlier cultures. Later, homesteaders and outlaws found refuge here. Whether your passion is science, adventure, history or scenery, Dinosaur offers much to explore.

Nothing like it anywhere

I don't know that you kind find a wall of dinosaur bones still in rock like this anywhere else. The exhibit is stunning and so accessible.

This is the only place I have ever seen a jumble of dinosaur bones still in the stone. They kept part of the dig site intact and build a museum around it.

The dinosaur quarry was impressive, that so many complete dinosaurs were found in one small place that are now in museums all over the US. A variety of scenery and geologic features and petroglyphs are available by car and short hikes. More by 4 wheel drive that I didn't get to do because of recent heavy rains. Very few people... More

I brought my husband here as a surprise birthday trip and we had so much fun. This place is full of real dinosaur bones you can touch and learn about through interactive monitors at the wall of bones. There's a road that has a bunch of different history points at stops along the way. There are trails you can hike... More

The wall of bones was great, the ride to the park was very nice, the views was great. Once you are at the park, you can take see the wall and take some of the trails. Worth the trip from SLC.

Even if you don't like dinosaurs, this place is wonderful. There's great scenery, hiking trails and it's well worth the visit. The most interesting part to me was the wall of bones - hundreds of dinosaur bones sticking out of the cliff. The visitor center is built into the side of a hill that holds the bones and has 2...

We have lived 2 1/2 hours from Dinosaur National Monument for 22 years and have never gone there before. Huge mistake!! This 210,000 acre park has it all, canyons, rivers, great trails, a dinosaur quarry, pictographs, petroglyphs, and even Josie Bassett Morris's old cabin. We spent a day sight seeing with our grandson and the hiked Desert Voices and sounds... More

After reading reviews and the website, I thought DNM would be a fun addition to our road trip home. It was a fun addition, but it was packed with visitors!!! It is apparently NOT A SECRET how awesome it is! The visitor center was so packed that we had a hard time wading through the traffic. There wasn't a guide-led... More

This park has a brand new visitor center, interesting things to see, and is not crowded. Recommend the Jr. Ranger activities for elementary age kids. The dinosaur quarry has vivid fossils.

Being able to see dinosaur bones embedded in rock just as the archaeologists found them is something quite special. I thought being able to touch them wasn't the best idea as you can see the damage being done to the bones from the oils on peoples hands. When Earl Douglass wrote in 1923 that he hoped the government would uncover... More
