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.

We came here because my son had seen signs off of the freeway that said, "Dinosaur Tracks" and he really wanted to go. We drove up to a small facility that, while housing some interesting dinosaur tracks found on site, was a waste of time for us to go to. My son breezed through the few artifacts they had and...

Actual dinosaur tracks found in a farmers field. Museum built to show tracks and dinosaur trivia. Easy one hour visit. School aged children or adults. You could take a toddler in s stroller. All inside. In town, so it's a nice stop on I-15 for food at local restaurants and a break from driving.

The only reason that I did not give this 5 stars is that it is still a small museum and you really need a guide. As the entire operation is driven by volunteers, much of the interest therefore depends on the guide. Derek, a retired geologist, made this a fascinating peek into prehistoric times -- and i am not even... More

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.
