My family and I stopped here after visiting Dinosaur National Monument. We came in the morning around opening time and were delighted by the excellent planning and fantastic exhibits. An interactive dinosaur dig, a movie, and the dinosaur gardens were the definite highlights of this visit, but the massive dinosaur skeleton in the atrium is the most spectacular I've ever... More

Definitely a good recommendation. We are older adults and really enjoyed the place. It would be great for the Grandkids. Lots of nice interactive displays. Love the way you slowly ascend to the second floor while looking at the displays. They have a senior discount on admission.

Totally worth stopping by after a visit to Dinosaur National Monument. They have a lot of assembled fossils from both the dinosaur and later prehistoric mammal periods. The outside dinosaur sculpture garden is pretty nice as well. The patch for their version of the junior ranger is waayyy cool.

My 12-yr old daughter and I visited this museum on our way to Dinosaur National Monument. We could easily have stayed much longer at the museum and in fact did not tour all of it due to a time crunch. The museum had great interactive exhibits and offered an opportunity to earn a junior ranger badge, as well as a... More

We visited the museum before we went out to the Dinosaur Monument and it was great. My 4 year had plenty to see and do and we loved reading all the information about the surrounding area and all the dinosaurs and native life. It was worth the admission and had plenty to see for a couple of hours. TIP: they... More

Excellent exhibit for a small town. And based on my observations during my visit, a great place for kids. :)

Arrived late in the day, so I only had about an hour to view the exhibits before they closed for the day. But if you go to Vernal, you must visit this place. Very educational and helpful in your dinosaur learning experience. It is worth the visit.
