Great dinosaur museum. If you have an hour, it's worth the visit. Located across from the football stadium. If you like fossils, it's a must!

Our grandchildren loved it. Amazing dinosaur finds in Utah! You can watch paleontologists at work. Good photo opportunities.

This was one of the coolest museums we went to regarding Paleontology. It is the top 5 in the world for the Jurassic period. Also got to watch the students actually work with the fossils. It's free and worth the stop.

Great full-sized displays. FREE ADMISSION. You can look into a real paleontology lab. We were even invited into the back room to see the storage of thousands of amazing dinosaur fossils. You can see it all in about 30 minutes, so it's perfect for the attention span of old and young alike. Lots of great opportunities for photographs up close with dinosaur skeletons. Only four stars because it is not the caliber of other more extensive museums, but it is no less worthwhile.
