Your whole family will Really LOVE this place. Warning! This attraction was only supposed to take a few minutes, maybe an hour to see and do. However, we were absolutely enthralled as soon as we stepped into the door. We were warmly greeted by Tracey, (a wonderful, and very knowledgeable lady, who in my humble opinion is extremely underpaid) she... More

You could spend several hours in this very well designed museum. Educational and fun. A surprise to find such a great museum in a small town.

We didn't think the museum was even open. I tried the door, and it was unlocked but there was no one at the desk,. However, a nice & very knowledgeable lady soon appeared. No offense to Blanding, but it looked like a pretty sleepy burg--not a place that would a have a professional-looking collection/display of all sorts of interesting dinosaur... More

This museum is such a delight. Nicely laid out with terrific life size dinosaur mockups, with lots of description to go along with the visual experience.

Well worth the visit. Surprisingly large for a town of this size. Good, well informed staff. And only $3.50?

the science for each exhibit were perfect in pointing out why it was important where it was found. The expert here makes a very good case on why the popular story about dinosaurs evolving into birds is not true. I sure bought it. I was surprised how much I enjoyed this museum. It really tried to teach. It may get... More

This was a fun museum with good exhibits. The museum is unique because it has not just dinosaurs and facts about them, but also has pop culture about dinosaurs and how they made movies with them. My favorite was the hundreds of movie posters from dinosaur/"monster" movies.

This is not your typical tourist trap of a museum, it is very inexpensive but full of interesting information. There are lots of dinosaur bones and dinosaur movie memorabilia. This was a nice stop for us in between national parks. If you have dinosaur fans in your family it is well worth a stop.

The Dinosaur Museum in Blanding was a planned visit on our way down to the Grand Canyon, and it was well worth the stop. The guide book said to allow one hour, but they have added a whole other wing of exhibits since then. Relax, see it all. It was a really interesting stop for us. They have some highly... More

First thing I noticed was the price. It only cost my family $11 where as the new Dino Museum North of Moab wants $60. This is a concrete building which didn't appear to have any ventilation. Lots of osculating fans were placed around inside. There are some things there I've never seen in any other museum. Mind you I haven't... More
