We were surprised at how small the facility is. Did not want to spend $12 for two of us without knowing if this was worthwhile. We chose NOT to go in, but found the free viewing location off Southern Parkway south of St. George that the BLM runs. Quite a drive but worth it!

OK, I am prejudiced. My husband and I are geologists, and it just blew us away to see the dinosaur tracks that were first uncovered in year 2000. The museum has slabs of rock displaying many tracks found in the area, but the showpiece is that the museum is actually built over the site where the tracks were originally located.... More

Nice introductory video and great to see the preservation of the tracks, especially with all the development/construction surrounding the site. Displays were easy to see labelled well!

We were not sure what to expect. Very interesting exhibit of Dinosaurs found at this site. It takes maybe an 1 hour or less to go through & is located just north of St. George. Should be especially interesting for kids.

I hadn't heard of this before but was staying in St George while visiting Zion so we popped in and I am so glad we did. It's a small and simple exhibition, but their track marks are amazing, so well preserved and well explained.

Aided by passionate volunteers the Dinosaur Discovery Site is wholesome stop - it's not huge and the dioramas are good not great, but the kids loved it, the outdoor area is entertaining - I'd recommend it

We took our 14 year old daughter and we all enjoyed this "discovery site." You can spend as little or as much time as you like inside the small building that houses the site. Our guide, who approached us and asked if we wanted to walk through on our own or have a "guided tour" was very personable and knowledgeable,... More

Not a LOT to do.. but since we are local and have been several times, we don't take full advantage of the tour. My girls love the activities outside digging in the sand. Not bad for a quick afternoon outing.
