Small Town Big display!

This is a great museum and located near where much of the natural history is found. The cost is minimal and they have done a good job.

If you do not get your fill of dinosaurs in nearby Dinosaur National Monument, this is a good add on. It is a fairly small museum but nicely done. There are exhibits that both adults and kids will enjoy. The outside exibit of dinosaurs is nicely done and educational.

One of the best laid out museums I have been to - very interesting but not overwhelming with loads of facts we would not remember. I especially liked the leaf fossil tile wall and the walk through time from room to room.

This museum is definitely geared toward children, but it was still interesting and a good way to spend a few hours while in Vernal. This is a beautiful building and all the fossils are displayed nicely. It was very slow in January so some of the films weren't working, but it was great to have the museum almost to ourselves....

Fee a little high.. But very educational. Enjoyed all the little details. The ocean views was a favorite. Also seeing the paleontology at work was fascinating.

I'm not sure how long this museum has been here, but the last time I was in Vernal, it was at a different location and was in a glorified trailer. This is a very nice museum, with two levels and an outdoor exhibit. The children in our party loved the first room, where there is a play area and interactive... More

The Field House is a great mix of education, experience, and fun. Many exhibits are hands-on making it a great place to wander and enjoy. It's so interesting to think how many of these fossils and artifacts were found right in this area.

We go here a couple times a year. Kids have a lot of fun. And the displays are really nice. We have a Dino day where we will watch movies, go up to dinosaur nTional monument and last visit this place to get our Dino fix.
