Owner description: The St. George Dinosaur Discovery Site at Johnson Farm preserves thousands of dinosaur tracks in place right at the site of discovery. Walk through a snapshot of an early Jurassic lake ecosystem and meet the dinosaurs and other animals that left their tracks here. See the world's largest collection of dinosaur swim tracks, and a rare track made by a crouching meat eating dinosaur, including hand impressions! Enjoy our special exhibit room and our Dino Park where kids can dig in the sand to find dinosaur tracks and practice making their own footprints! The museum is fully air conditioned. Bathrooms, water fountains, and a gift shop are available. Well behaved small dogs are welcome.

“Not worth it.”
Reviewed December 30, 2012

I took my two kids. Its basically a covered warehouse with little in the way of information and pricey admission. Although my kids (age 5 and 8) are interested in dinosaurs they were totally disinterested in this place. Unless you are a mega enthusiast avoid this place!.

“Great learning experience”
Reviewed December 11, 2012

There are no large dinosaurs. The ones located there were a small type, but very interesting. You can actually see where they are cleaning, digging and displaying the various types of dinosaurs. Great education for children and adults of all ages.

“Fun for little and big kids”
Reviewed November 25, 2012

Really neat place to get up close and see the tracks left by dinosaurs. The venue is now covered so it makes for a great rainy day activity.

“Super fun!”
Reviewed November 13, 2012

The best part was watching someone work in the lab in the back, cleaning tracks and what not. This was a fun way to spend a couple hours, and we paid to write our names on a footprint at the end.
