This was not very exciting for our 2 and 4 year olds. They had a sand box outside, but it was too cold to stay out and play for very long.

This is a family friendly museum that let's you get close to the dinosaur footprints. There is even the world's only print of the posterior of a dinosaur sitting like a dog. Life size dinosaur cut outs help you understand the scale of the animals. The staff is very friendly and the premises are clean and cool. I just wish... More

This museum has friendly staff and is full of good informative information. It is small but it explains the geological history of the area around St. George and how these impressive tracks where preserved. It also give you the opportunity to see fossils being prepared.

This museum has an impressive collection of dinosaur tracks, including swim tracks, from the Jurassic period. The volunteers on staff are very knowledgeable and friendly. They definitely made the visit a memorable and enjoyable experience. The children's play area has hands on exhibits and activities. There is enough to keep the kids interested in coming back. Their website is very... More

You can read others' reviews or the museum's website to learn what the museum includes. -- Why should you visit? To see unique finds that exist nowhere else in the world; also, because the dino prints are accessible to a remarkable degree, archeologists come from all over the globe to work on the finds, and the docents are excellent and...

A great place to visit for all ages. Lots of history and information of the dinosaurs that roamed the earth and Utah. Very clean and the staff is great. We have been several times with our 5 sons as each of them have grown up.

This is a very intriguing museum/excavation site which displays dinosaur footprints, mostly from the location the museum sits on. Seeing these prints, some of which are a foot long, really brings home the size of the creatures that made them. The docent was very helpful, fleshing out how the prints came to be. The only thing I would suggest is... More

Lots of good information about dinosaur tracks, and the process of recovering them. I like that it is a working location, and not just a roadside attraction.

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
