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.

Dinosaurs tracks seem to abound in the area but this site had skin impressions, which are exceedingly rare, as well as hundreds of tracks in a comfortable indoor exhibit.

Interesting, but 30 minutes is plenty of time to take in the museum. I think this is a place that would be better enjoyed by young children.

My 4yo son is dinosaur crazy, he really enjoyed the pterosaur exhibit and the hands on activities in the back room. He wasn't as keen on looking at all the footprints, he wanted to see more model dinosaurs but he still talked about afterwards so obviously enjoyed it. The gift shop is full of interesting things and the service was very friendly.

It is has so many display of dinosaur tracks, would be interesting for children. The admission fee is $6/adult. There is a 5-6 min video they show you before the tour.

If there was no charge for this small museum it would be worth the cost. Its $6 for adults and $3 for children 4-11.
But they have not in my option developed it enough to make it worth the cost of admittance. Just alot of footprints mostly to be seen, which is somewhat interesting, and it does take up time if you want something to do. It also has an area outside for children to dig in the sand for footprints and fossels.And the small store is pretty good. It takes about 15-20 min or so to see all the exhibits.
It has restroom facilities, but no food available.
