Interesting!

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.

My daughters loved this museum! There was appropriate information for both adults and children. Was both hands on and had great visual displays.

The kids enjoyed it, good price. Not a great museum in comparison to other natural history museums, but for the price it was worth doing.

This museum doesn't have the quantity or variety of dinosaurs that other museums in the area have. It is near the Dinosaur national park and might be worth going to as an appetizer before the national park, but this cannot be compared to the Wyoming dinosaur museum or the museum at thanksgiving point (south of Salt Lake City).

Came here for the first time since my parents brought me as a kid. It isn't even the same building! Everything was what I remembered times 100. The building and exhibits are state of the art and up to date. So many interactive learning moments. My kids and I really loved it.

Very informative and visually exciting. Great for the whole family. Unfortunately we didn't get in to Vernal until late afternoon so we were unable to do a thorough visit as the museum closed at 5 p.m. But what we did get to see was fantastic.

If you are visiting Dinosaur National Monument, this is a good addition to your visit. Grandchildren loved the full-sized dinosaurs in the garden. It also offers a look at the pre-history of the Vernal region. It is a comfortable place to spend a couple hours and actually relax. We visited in July, and I was amazed at the profusion of... More

We went to this museum because of the local dinosaur finds and native American displays. We really enjoyed our visit, it does not take a long time to see everything so small children would do well here.
