Fun when you have a couple of hours to kill.

We stopped here when we had a couple of hours to spare. Entrance price was very reasonable. It's not very big, but it's interesting. They also have a fun little room for kids where they can do a few dinosaur crafts. If you are looking for an activity that doesn't take long, this is a good option

The Discovery Center has a clear and useful video to start the tour, and then a well laid out walk way through displays. There are scientific explanations for those who want them, and even actual scientists on hand to answer questions. The footprints were discovered recently: the year 2000. It is surprising that such a finished building is already covering... More

Nice but small museum in which you can find tracks of dinosaur. The museum was build over the finding place. Regrettable almost all items are reproductions.

This was surprising to read when the reviewer stated that "almost all items were reproductions." The trackway over which the building is built is not a reproduction and still has areas that are unexcavated and being worked on, the entire museum is filled with the actual blocks of dinosaur tracks and other traces that were excavated from this site, the...

Very fun, very educational, very remarkable. Don't miss this if you are in the St. George area. It doesn't cost a lot or take a lot of time. Therefore, I'll keep this review short.

We were impressed by the information given along with the displays at this new museum at the unexpected excavation site. People with children who are fascinated with dinosaurs will love this interesting site that is ongoing. While we were visiting the comprehensive displays, enthusiastic volunteers were busy at work with microscopes and also still digging and examining excavation pieces.

This site is not very large so you can see everything in a short period of time. Interesting information about how the site was discovered and the history of the period when the dinosaurs were here

There was a lot of ancient things to see in one place. It is a way away from the city, but I think kids who have studied dinosaurs would really like it.

I took my family to the Dinosaur Discovery site. I have to admit that it's pretty cool seeing the tracks of the dinosaurs so well preserved. However, I only noticed three different species' tracks and slab after slab of the same thing. While they had other bones there, most of those were replicas. Definitely a cool thing to see, but...

This is not only a museum preserving artifacts from the Age of Dinosaurs but also a working artifact site. You can watch archeologists restore dinosaur bones while you are walking in the steps of these dinosaurs.

I never saw dinosaur tracks before. This was a very interesting site. It's not so big that it takes all day to get through it all and read all the plaques. You can spend an hour or two there and see it all. Really fascinating stuff and a great story about how it was all discovered and preserved.
