“Great museum - don't miss it!”
Reviewed February 20, 2012

First of all, this little museum is twice the size I expected for a small town like Price. The mammoth is one of the best specimens around and is impressive! In this room, you are surrounded by Native American exhibits, including the large, prehistoric Barrier Canyon mural and some skeletons of large animals that have disappeared from the American scene, like the saber-tooth tiger and dire wolf; plus, there's more upstairs. open bay style on both sides.

Then, in another large room beyond the great gift shop, many more displays of dinosaurs, like the impressive allosaurus and the fearsome utahraptor, plus a flesh-eating repile, dimetrodon with a hugh sail-like structure on its back, plus other fossils and dinos too numerous to list.

Reviewed February 8, 2012

We all really loved all the exhibits, especially if you bring kids and catch them when they feed the baby alligators!

“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.
