Now I wish I had gone to this museum. It looks like a good source of information. Before going to Dinosaur.

After visiting Dinosaur National Monument we stopped at the Field house. There were more bones and a very cool wall of fossils and interactive exhibits. All of us enjoyed the visit

This museum is well known and worth a visit. The displays, both indoors and out are well done. If you are in Vernal, you should see this.

We enjoyed learing more about fossils and dinosaurs. We were glad it was open on Sunday, since that was our only day left to visit there.

This is a nice museum if dinosaurs are your thing. The dinosaur garden was a little of a mess but they were working on it during our visit. It doesn't cost much to tour and I would recommend visiting.

We visited the museum after arriving in Vernal from Salt Lake City. Our kids, 4 and 2, were so excited as soon as they walked into the building!

A nice display of the fossils and a geological review. The videos should have been watched before walking the museum floor.

I enjoyed visiting this museum and there were lots of cool things to see there. If you are visiting it with children, there are fun, hands-on things for them to do, like excavating mock-up fossils out of a tray of soil, etc. There are dinosaur gardens outside, as well as the exhibits inside. This museum doesn't require a long visit,... More
