The old new museum was good, but this new one is GREAT! Wonderful design, extremely educational, a terrific experience for young and old. A must see if in Vernal and/or if going to the Dino Nat'l. Mon.

My last visit to Vernal was back in 1993 where I visited the Quarry and the old Field Museum. The new one appears to have cost a pretty penny but I found it to be interesting and informative. There are a lot of information packed in this place and it geared toward educating the public about dinosaurs and their many time periods. I found the museum to be well laid out. I was bit surprised to see some of the dinosaur modules from the Quarry here in Vernal. I double checked my photos from 1993 and spotted several dinosaur models from that year shown here, after being repainted and all. The triceratop model is a dead give away to the old concept of what these creatures looked like...just checked out its bend legs...most modern version of this dinosaur all got them in straight legs....not lizard type of the old. Staff at this Museum however appears to be clueless. Most of them are younger then these models!!

I think most kids interested in dinosaurs will love it...as the adults did. A good look will take about 90 minutes...careful look will required 3 hours.

The new museum is bigger and newer but the old one was way better. Seems like it had a lot more stuff. The dinosaurs outside seem out of their element because before they were in the gardens.

Extremely educational and perfectly geared to all ages. The layout and displays very well done. Really liked that the kids could sleuth dinosaurs artifacts.

There isn't much to do in Vernal. This is a must see. Interesting place. Give yourself an hour minimum. The kids will enjoy it.
