I called in here as I was passing through St George. It was very interesting and amazing to think that dinosaurs had actually walked here. My grandchildren would have loved it. The museum guide was very enthusiastic and gave us lots of information.

This was a really good hour's break on a journey, fascinating. OK it's all run on a bit of a shoestring and maybe slightly amateurish but the enthusiasm of the staff was great, happy to answer questions. I for one haven't seen the type of exhibits they have there, the dinosaur claw marks preserved in the fossilised riverbed and just... More

Interesting place for the whole family. Was intrigued by the area where the recovery of fossils took place.

I was hoping for a bit more skeletons than just foot tracks & lots of reading. I think definitely more kid oriented.

Very interesting that the fossils were discovered by accident! The museum guide was very knowledgeable.

My dino loving son was thrilled to make this stop. However, after stopping at the Tuba City dino tracks earlier in our trip - this was disappointing! It's covered and air conditioned with rest rooms....but everything is roped off. You can't really get close to it and feel the experience like Tuba City.

My boys love dinosaurs so I thought this would be a fun trip for them. I think the best part about the visit was the educational tape at the beginning. There's a lot of reading when you're walking around so I think this would be better for older children.

We had some extra time one afternoon in St. George and decided to try the dinosaur museum. The video was a little juvenile for our tastes but didn't last long. Once we started exploring the museum and found out how much was discovered by accident we were hooked. To learn how many dinosaurs were in that area, and to be... More

Located in the middle of a residential area next to a major highway, this place is a real "Find". Bring the kids, Plan to spend a couple of hours.

Took our 2 year old daughter because she loves dinosaurs. If it weren't for the room with crayons, paper, puzzles, and toys, she wouldn't have enjoyed this place at all. It was a huge room with rocks, which most didn't even have a description of what it was. The majority of it all were just replicas. I'm glad they didn't... More
