The exhibits are well done and the settings/staging really set the panoramas off. The book store has some unique items that I had to buy and take home.

Interesting stop while traveling through Vernal. We spent about an hour and half inside. There is a nice outside area; Dinosaur Garden. Families with young children seemed to enjoy this. There is also a nice little gift shop.
