If you are in Price and have 1-2 hours to fill this is the place. I'm impressed with what they've put together. They have an audio tour that uses your cell phone. Some impressive displays. Much more than I expected.

We had so much fun at this museum. It's really well done. We spent just over an hour there and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. The diorama of native life was particularly good and the explanation of dinosaur bones and fossils was great too. Highly recommended!

Been several time but this time I had a business associate with me that was new to the area and I wanted him to get a little idea of what lived here millions of years ago.

The kids had a great time. The exhibits are a little old but I don't think the kids cared. The kids really enjoyed the interactive corner of the museum.

We stopped in Price, Utah, on our way from Arches National Park back to Ogden, Utah. My husband likes to see whatever museums or historical sites are in towns we visit so I reluctantly agreed to visit the USU Eastern Prehistoric Museum. What a wonderful experience it was! Lloyd Logan, the director of education and exhibits, was called by the... More

Some of my selections, specifically the date, are not truly accurate. I have visited the museum numerous times with family and with the group of adults I work with in a day program for adults with special needs. It's family friendly with activities for children, the staff is helpful if you have questions, exhibits have good explanation and exposure and... More

This museum has a lot of quality pieces. Took our 1 year old daughter and even she liked it. Museum staff was really friendly too.

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.
