“Dinosaurs!”
Reviewed January 7, 2012

This museum is part of CEU in Price and is one of the best natural history museums we have visited. Their collection is cream of the crop and we thoroughly enjoyed our visit there. It was educational and fun.

“Great stop In Price Utah!”
Reviewed October 16, 2011

We where passing through to Salt Lake city and had heard about the Museum here on trip advisor. This museum isn't the biggest but it is packed full of interesting things. The people here were friendly and very helpful also. My kids enjoyed playing in the kids area. Very nice low priced, educational pit stop.
