Small, but really interesting.

My son has wanted to be a paleontologist since he was 3, so we figured we'd visit. No entrance fee... read more

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

Great activity to do with young children 5 years and older. Small museum but lots of great dinosaurs and fossils. Fun day!

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.
