“Great Place For Dinosaur Education ”

BYU Museum of Paleontology
Ranked #10 of 34 things to do in Provo
Attraction details
Reviewed 17 April 2018 via mobile

Such a nice little gem at BYU to spend an hour or more learning about the dinosaurs of the Utah area. You can also see students processing fossils through a window into the workshop. The full size dinosaur skeletal displays are amazing. Several fossils you are encouraged to touch. The displays allow an easy flow that keeps you intrigued around every corner. Great places for selfies and family pictures. Closeup Parking and convenient bathrooms are a big plus.

This small museum is located near the football stadium of BYU. Its pretty small in size so the whole thing can be seen in an hour. There are a few dinosaur skeletons displayed. What was interesting is that thruout the displays some had labels ‘touch the fossils’ so those who cannot resist touching things can do so to their hearts content

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.
