Description:

Dinosaurs once roamed here. Their fantastic remains are still visible...

Dinosaurs once roamed here. Their fantastic remains are still visible embedded in the rocks. Today, the mountains, desert and untamed rivers flowing in deep canyons, support an array of life. Petroglyphs hint at earlier cultures. Later, homesteaders and outlaws found refuge here. Whether your passion is science, adventure, history or scenery, Dinosaur offers much to explore.

Great place to learn about our country's dinosaur history. The indoor museum was neat, with a large wall of dinosaur bones left untouched in the rock that they were found in, and you're allowed to touch many of them. There's also outdoor trails you can walk to try to find more dinosaur bones on your own. Definitely worth a visit... More

Stopped here during our summer road trip. A little off the beaten pass, but well worth the stop. The number of dinosaurs/bones in this one place is incredible. This was a very interesting and educational stop for us. They have camping available and a nice visitor center. The staff were all friendly and provided additional insights to this place.

I went to the monument when I was younger and I wanted to take my husband now. It is no less awe-inspiring today then it was 10 years ago. The people were great. The tour guide was good with small children and with adults. The material was also good for the young and the old.

I don't know that you kind find a wall of dinosaur bones still in rock like this anywhere else. The exhibit is stunning and so accessible.

This is the only place I have ever seen a jumble of dinosaur bones still in the stone. They kept part of the dig site intact and build a museum around it.

The dinosaur quarry was impressive, that so many complete dinosaurs were found in one small place that are now in museums all over the US. A variety of scenery and geologic features and petroglyphs are available by car and short hikes. More by 4 wheel drive that I didn't get to do because of recent heavy rains. Very few people... More

I brought my husband here as a surprise birthday trip and we had so much fun. This place is full of real dinosaur bones you can touch and learn about through interactive monitors at the wall of bones. There's a road that has a bunch of different history points at stops along the way. There are trails you can hike... More

The wall of bones was great, the ride to the park was very nice, the views was great. Once you are at the park, you can take see the wall and take some of the trails. Worth the trip from SLC.

Even if you don't like dinosaurs, this place is wonderful. There's great scenery, hiking trails and it's well worth the visit. The most interesting part to me was the wall of bones - hundreds of dinosaur bones sticking out of the cliff. The visitor center is built into the side of a hill that holds the bones and has 2...

We have lived 2 1/2 hours from Dinosaur National Monument for 22 years and have never gone there before. Huge mistake!! This 210,000 acre park has it all, canyons, rivers, great trails, a dinosaur quarry, pictographs, petroglyphs, and even Josie Bassett Morris's old cabin. We spent a day sight seeing with our grandson and the hiked Desert Voices and sounds... More
