“Johnson Farm Dinosaur Site”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013

If you have an interest in Dinosaurs this is a neat place to visit. The building covers the major dig. Best for older children that can read and are interested in Dinosaurs.

“Awesome for what it is”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 27, 2013

We came to St George for my son's birthday. He loves dinosaurs so the trip was planned around this museaum. They were so kind to him! I wish their was more hands on stuff to do but overall it was a great time. I will say it is a small museum. It is super cool knowing how the museum came about .

“Not quite what I expected”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 16, 2013

For those who are interested in dino's then this is the place. The exhibits are all inside a building about the size of a high school gymnasium. After 4 or 5 exhibits of dino bones and tracks I was done with the place. However, for a youngster or an adult interested in dinosaurs I would recommend this place. For some reason, I was expecting an outdoor park with dinosaur bones similar to La Brea tar pits in L.A. without the tar pits. However, I can't complain about Johnson Farm.

“Fairly rare findings”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 13, 2013

I have never seen before so many dinosaur tracks in one museum. Very good explanations. You can visit in one hour. But of course the topic is a bit specialized and less fascinating that viewing reconstructions of whole dinosaurs.

“Awesome site to visit”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2013

After reading previous reviews about this place, I felt it was well worth the time to check it out with my family especially since it was indoors in the month of July.

The place had really neat preserved dinosaur tracks including people working behind glass counters trying to locate additional historical dinosaur fossils.

There was a lot to see in that little museum. This place also hosts a small area for kids to just unwind and maybe do an origami or two and play with additional puzzles, etc.
