The drive out is a bit long on a well kept dirt road. My kids enjoyed going through a town called Elmo and we took pictures at the Elmo Library and Elmo Post Office. The area was very unique with large rock boulders. The kids loved just running around chasing rabbits and trying to catch lizards. I have 3 boys... More

I went along 12 miles of dusty gravel road to find only a small museum. The walks not clearly defined and little explanation. There is an exposed section in two small huts. There is NO digging as mentioned in some brochures. Better to spend an extra day in Vernal or go to Green River where there is some digging.

We hiked two ways trough the landscape and havent't seen anything interesting. Like others write before me, it is disappointing to see only a few bones and one dinosaur model

It is a pretty good drive on dusty unpaved roads. They have a small visitor center with some nice exhibits and models. The quarry area is covered by a building with some exposed bones. There appears to be little activity. We were the only people there during our visit. There is a $5 fee per person admission.

After seeing the Utah Dinosaur National monument I have to admit my expectations were pretty high. Being the large concentrations of Dinosaur bones came from such a small area, there is one building with most of the original bones removed and replicas in their place. There are some displays in the building where you pay but it is not very... More

It was pretty interesting to see the dinosaur bones still embedded in the rock, but it was a very long drive on desolate roads to get there. I did the two hikes at the center, so I spent half a day there. If you're not a total dinosaur fanatic, you might be disappointed at the few things to see (versus... More

I happened to be in Price, but otherwise it's a bit of a trek to get here. The last 12 miles are well-maintained gravel, but the drive is cool. Overall, I think I got lucky on my visit. The guy working here was fantastic, and went above and beyond anything I would have expected from a BLM employee. He just... More

This is a great find if you're into dinosaurs. Very fascinating. They recently had a major renovation and the building is gorgeous! Easy to navigate. Sometimes you can see the DRs working in the field digging up bones! Or you can take the hike and possibly find something yourself! (bring hiking shoes and water if you take the hike)

Great little museum. Tour guides were well-informed and friendly. Ask for the special tours! Off the beaten track.

It was not our first choice, but it was OK. Its a long drive on a dirt road, so fill up your tank before you go. Lots of secenic desert and a couple of small towns along the way. The visitors building is small, but has some good displays, walk the trail out to the dig site buildings. I was... More
