It's family friendly with activities for children, the staff is helpful if you have questions, exhibits have good explanation and exposure and... More

A very nice yet small Natural History Museum. Focus is on the local geology, zoology and history. I have been several times and will often revisit while in the area.

This is a great museum to learn about the historic and prehistoric. The displays are informative, attractive and well done. A great stopover for the whole family to enjoy. They always have something new if you haven't been in awhile too.

This is a nice sized museum with an extensive collection of dinosaurs. They have skeletons, eggs, footprints, and a huge clam.

This is a very intresting museum in a very remote place. There are a lot of fossils and dinosaurs. They also have a lot of native artifacts. There is a play area for children. You can also watch them feed the alligator, turtle and a lizard. Very intresting place to visit.

We visited here in August 2014 with our 3 and 5 year old. They were interested in the exhibits and liked looking at the huge dinosaurs. The museum has a lot of puebloan artifacts and tons of locally found fossils. There is also a children's area to play with ladders and fossil discovery.

We found this place using trip advisor while planning a trip to Moab. Definitely worth the stop. We used the family price plan and saved a few bucks which was good. The place has a lot more than we expected and we really enjoyed the large displays and the easy to navigate floor plan. If traveling through the area and... More

Could not believe the size of those mammoths! All of the bones shown are so huge, we just find it hard to believe such animals existed. Although not that interested in this type of thing-so glad that we visited. Very nice

I have visited this museum many times, for 20 years taking first graders on field trips there, and each year there have been additions and improvements. There is always something new for me to see and learn about. It is always interesting. The Hall of Man has the Mammoth and Native American exhibits, the Hall of Dinosaurs has many exhibits.... More
