This is a cool place to check out once. You only need an hour or so to walk around. The preservation of the rocks is amazing and they have people constantly working on additional pieces.

The building is built on top of sea bed that was unearthed by Dr Johnson who was clearing the land to sell. When he found foot prints. Its was interesting learning about it all, and seeing the dig site. There was... More

We very much enjoyed seeing the prints left by the dinosaurs millions of years ago. There were many kids looking, but our group consisted of three adults. We even enjoyed the short movie which did a lot to explain how the tracks were preserved.

We stayed one night in St. George on our way back to catch a flight out of Las Vegas and to kill some time we visited here. It was just terrific! What a great story of the discovery of the tracks and how impressive the city of St. George chipped in to help preserve them. There are lots of dinosaur... More

I love geology and dinosaurs so I was pretty much in heaven. This place was great. There were tons of dino footprints and plenty to learn about the geologic history of southern Utah. It also seems like they are ever improving the museum. I overheard someone saying there is something different every time they come and heard about some nice... More

A smaller place than you would expect. The volunteer who takes your admission fee also hits the remote to start the opening video, which plays behind a curtain from a TV on a roller cart. No frills here. Then you are free to walk around the maybe 50yrd site. There are actual people working on actual stones in the back,... More

This is a wonderful place to take kids who are tired of driving. You can spend an hour or so, and have a very informative visit. They have preserved some of the site so you can see the fossils right where they were found, not just moved and put on a shelf. It is very interactive. I found it worth... More

My husband and I are dinosaur lovers. We have visited many, many dinosaur museums in our life and this is easily one of our favorites. We raised two boys who are also dinosaur lovers and I teach kindergarten so I am going to add that I don't think little ones' attention will be kept too long here. We overheard one... More
