We stayed here much longer than planned because we tend to dive right in and read the materials presented with the displays. This is not a huge museum but it has a good variety of displays and information about the area and its uniqueness. Fascinating and worth the time. Enjoyed the outdoor garden with dinosaur statues scattered about.

This is an amazing facility for a town of this size. Truly a high-value display that is both fun and educational. You will be a hero to your kids if you take them here; however, this is still great for adults.

Realistic time required: 2 hrs. Targeted age: all This really was better than I thought it would be! We enjoyed the interactive things the museum had available. Just a ton of info about life in the different eras and how it impacted the area. We finished with the life size dinosaur walk outside which was awesome!

This place is great for kids as well as for adult! The Dino garden is amazing with all the real - sized Dinos from different eras. Its not too big so little children can enjoy it without getting too tired. Don't miss out the dinosaur monument as well !!

This is the place to go to see Dinosaurs in Eastern Utah. The Field house has lots of fun stuff for kids, and some educational stuff to keep the parents busy as well. It also has info on geology and some info on the Ute Indians.

Our family had a nice outing here. We enjoyed all of the exhibits and learned so much. My youngest grandson was amazed by the lifelike dinosaur trail outside.
