I didn't think I'd like looking at dinosaur bones as much as I did, but the displays were very well done and informative. One of the student curators was very helpful.

This is a fun stop for the kids, the visit takes maybe a little longer than an hour or so. Again, it is free and the kids get a huge kick out of seeing all of the dino stuff. It was not very busy either...More

This dinosaur museum is fun, entertaining and with a group you can arraign a private tour. It is great to have a Paleontology student guide you through the age of dinosaurs. You can stand up close and personal.

Great dinosaur museum. If you have an hour, it's worth the visit. Located across from the football stadium. If you like fossils, it's a must!

Our grandchildren loved it. Amazing dinosaur finds in Utah! You can watch paleontologists at work. Good photo opportunities.

This was one of the coolest museums we went to regarding Paleontology. It is the top 5 in the world for the Jurassic period. Also got to watch the students actually work with the fossils. It's free and worth the stop.

This is a 10 minutes stop if you have some time to kill, certainly not a destination spot.
