We almost turned around when we saw it would cost $66 for us all to get in, but we discovered it was well worth it. For a smaller museum, it was amazing to see the quantity and variety of dinosaur fossils they had. We could have stayed there easily 3 or more hours. This museum should rank as one of... More

I've been to many of the famous Dinosaur museums in Europe, New York, Washington D.C. and other places. This museum is by most people vastly underestimated, because: - alone the entrance hall has more complete fossils (20+) than many, many others - both complete fossils and full sized models are abundant - great interactive plays for kids (sand streams) -...

Very glad we stopped here. A family of 6 can get in for $12! With a 2 & 4 yr old, we were able to keep them entertained for a good hour w hands on activities. If we were visiting without the kids, I could probably spend hours here looking at the rock & mineral collection. Lots of good stuff... More

I have been to this museum numerous times in my life being from the area. So much to look at so plan on 2-3 hours especially if you have kids. Great place to learn about local history as well as natural. Don't forget to admire the building itself.

Great museum, couldn't really ask for more. The kids will definitely enjoy this place. I suggest making sure you have lots of time to enjoy the place.

I've been going here since I was a little girl. It's always delightful! The geology section has some neat exhibits, but my favorite has to be the section about the various wars that soldiers from the area fought in. There are displays of uniforms, letters, and other neat artifacts. Check it out!

Nearly all of the original museum artifacts were gathered by John and his extended family. It has grown from a one room building behind John's house to a multi-level museum with many interesting Utah artifacts.

As a senior, the price was $3 and definitely worth a visit. There were sea shell displays, a room of labeled rocks, local memorabilia and Indian artifacts. Unique!

The museum is not big but has a good variety of everything, they have a good collection of rocks of all kinds. A little bit of Lehi history.
