The St. George Dinosaur Discovery Site at Johnson Farm preserves thousands...

The St. George Dinosaur Discovery Site at Johnson Farm preserves thousands of dinosaur tracks in place right at the site of discovery. Walk through a snapshot of an early Jurassic lake ecosystem and meet the dinosaurs and other animals that left their tracks here. See the world's largest collection of dinosaur swim tracks, and a rare track made by a crouching meat eating dinosaur, including hand impressions! Enjoy our special exhibit room and our Dino Park where kids can dig in the sand to find dinosaur tracks and practice making their own footprints!

The museum is fully air conditioned. Bathrooms, water fountains, and a gift shop are available. Well behaved small dogs are welcome.

My 3 year old is crazy about dinosaurs and this place was ok, the exhibits are more for a mature crowd. The outside play area was ok, not spectacular it I do appreciate their desire to preserve and display their findings. They were interesting to my husband and me but just over my 3 year olds head.

We've been to many dinosaur museums. This one while small is one of the best because of the quality of the exhibits and the access to them. Go to it while visiting Zion or Bryce Canyon.

I have 2 boys and they like dinosaurs so we stopped here while visiting family. It is an interesting place but it is overpriced for what you actually see. I think the price should be 50% of what they actually charge. If you want to see dinosaur bones this is not the place to go, it is all foot prints.

My boy loves dinosaurs, no doubt he really love this place. We spent longer than we expected as there are so many thing to discover and learn. What a great experience !!! All kids love this place and were excited every where here... It's worth of time to stop by when you pass St.George or in this area

local fossils supplemented by many reproductions. Self guided tour and not very interesting to someone who has seen far better dinosaur displays and museums. Cost was the same as animal museum across town and not nearly as nice or informative. I personally will not take visitors there again and the group I took thought it was just OK but nothing... More

Take the kids and whole family. Very interesting, fun to see the replications (sorry, no Jurassic Park) . Kids love it, were drawing dinosaurs the rest of their visit. Not an expansive museum, but very interesting since Utah is one of the states with a lot of dino finds and dig sites.

We had a few free hours and wanted to get out of the heat. Our hotel deskman said "touristy." Was he wrong! Although small, this site features many dinosaur prints that are unique in the world. There's even a track that shows a dino dragging his butt! The tracks were discovered by an ophthalmologist who was digging to build something... More
