Overview

The St. George Dinosaur Discovery Site at Johnson Farm preserves thousands of dinosaur tracks in place right at the site of discovery. Walk through a snapshot of an early Jurassic lake ecosystem and meet the dinosaurs and other animals that left their tracks here. See the world's largest collection of dinosaur swim tracks, and a rare track made by a crouching meat eating dinosaur, including hand impressions! Enjoy our special exhibit room and our Dino Park where kids can dig in the sand to find dinosaur tracks and practice making their own footprints! The museum is fully air conditioned. Bathrooms, water fountains, and a gift shop are available. Well behaved small dogs are welcome.

This is a fun place for the family. Some of the very young children may get a little board, and there are also things to do outside. There is usually somebody working on artifacts behind the glass, alway interesting.

We had a great time looking at all the dinosaur tracks at this site. To see so much activity preserved in the sandstone was quite a sight. It's a great compliment to other museums that have fossils only.

I visited with grown children and a 2 year-old toddler. There is a children's room with games and puzzles, and the actual dinosaur excavation and information is fascinating.
