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.

After walking in Snow Canyon State Park we had some time to spare so we gave his place s visit. We spent an interesting hour or so looking at the artefacts and reading the information. We learnt a lot we didn't know about these extent creatures and it was great to view the footprints.

Went with my husband, thought it would be interesting, and it was VERY interesting. Not very big at all, but plenty to see. It's a running joke in my family, my eldest daughter has had a facination with dinosaurs practically since she was born. Many interesting facts and exhibits here under a small roof. It's a go on your own... More

This was over priced for what you get to be honest. Cute little older people running the place are super helpful and kind. But, it just wasn't something I feel like younger kids will be as interested in. My 6 yr old was entertained for about 20 min max. Pass.

We decided to stop here on our way from Vegas to Zion. It wasn't all that easy to find, but it was worth the short detour. Our son is studying Geology in the UK, and he had a great chat with the guide, who was a geologist himself. The dinosaur footprints are amazing, especially the section where one 'sat down'... More

It was warm so to get out of the sun for a while we visited this museum.It is not very big but it is asked fun of ancient artifacts. Cool indoor walking path along various dinosaur print displays and a few outdoor activities for the children. Plan on at least an hour visit.

It was a small museum and very informative. I wouldn't say we were disapointed for visiting the museum and the price was right. Just wished there were more things to look at. The kids enjoyed the drawing table.

Brought our 5 year old, and she enjoyed it. It's only going to entertain for a coulpe of hours at most. Exibits are good and the tracks are cool. But again, not that much to see.

An active dinosaur site still under investigation, and open to the public (the building is built around the dinosaur track finds). After watching a short video explaining the history of the museum, you can walk the path showing the various dinosaur tracks found on the farm, and even walk over a bridge to see the areas still being cleaned and...

This is a must see attraction in Utah. I have always been interested in dinosaurs but this attraction really started a new passion! It also really helps you to SEE the landscape around you and appreciate the beauty in its age!
