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.

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.

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.
