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

We stopped with our 4 year old daughter, who loved digging for dinosaur "bones" in the sandbox. The preserved tracks are impressive, and the short movie is helpful. The staff members are experts and know how to explain the findings. Not too big - 45 minutes to 2 hours is enough to enjoy the place. And nice to find a... More

I am interested in paleontology and we were passing through so decided to stop. Don't expect much. Interesting to see the tracks but really in need of more. The video at the beginning is a cartoon at first and only for kids followed by a segment on how the tracks were created and found. Our party of 4 looked at... More

This is really cool place, if you have children. Its not that exciting for an adult not interested in Pre-Historic Animals. Dino Bones are cool and they have activities to keep the kids entertained.

If you have big Dino fans, it's interesting to see the Dino footprints, but it is only a few and touching us mostly off limits. We've been to Glen Rose, TX were you can see them unremoved and touch them. Way cooler. The price is a bit high for what you get to see and do. An OK diversion at... More
