“No hokey dinosaurs here”
Reviewed September 1, 2012

This is a genuine museum, created to educate visitors in a subtle and informative way about the dinosaurs and geology of the area. It is no tourist trap, but a great experience, and is especially kid-friendly.

“Fantastic museum!”
Reviewed August 3, 2012

This is a nice, small museum and a must on your to-do list while in the Vernal area. It has one of the best walk thru time that I've seen with my dino loving children.

“A most informative museum!”
Reviewed July 23, 2012

The displays of different periods in the evolution of the period were most informative. We visited the Field House after touring Dinosaur National Monument and it brought everything to life. We could see the different dinosaur bones that have been found in the region. The short video was helpful in learning how paleontologists search for fossils and bones. Replicas of different species of dinosaurs are most helpful in visualizing what dinosaurs looked like.
