Although this museum is very small they use their space well and it is packed with a lot of well- displayed stuff. It was late in the day or we might have stayed longer, but the half hour we were there was perfect for the 2 year old who loves dinosaurs.

My grandson enjoyed watching the students working in the lab. We also enjoyed the display of minerals as well as the dinosaur bones.
The building is older, not in the best repair. The coolers are noisy and one was leaking water on the floor. It is a fairly small museum and not fancy.

Worth the stop, great displays that are informative and appealing. We loved the museum, worth the time to stop in while in Provo.

My 2 teenage daughters enjoyed coming here with their dinosaur obsessed dad. The viewing gallery for the work room was particularly fascinating for them. Getting to see fossil preparation in action was nice! The variety of mounted specimens and information was particularly good for the cost of admission (free).
