We have been to the Blanding area and camped on BlueMountain several times. Our children loved the dinosaur museum. The types of displays are varied so that people of all ages can learn about the dinosaurs.

There is always another room to look at with more interesting stuff to see. One big room has amazing dinosaurs and posters of dinosaurs from movies, and another room has collections of little dinosaurs. Fun to see!

This is truly a hidden gem in Blanding. Very informative with awesome exhibits and displays. Never expected to have an opportunity to see so many assembled fossils here - was here purely for the archaeology site visits. Take at least an hour or two of...More

This museum is not a tourist trap or an indoor fun park geared for kids. It is highly interesting for adults with real dinosaur skeletons and displays ( but kids will love it too!) Very informative with a helpful guide who will answer any questions...More
