It is a great place for families, especially when kids are tired. A lot of interesting exhibits about natural history. However, this museum is rather small.

These creatures actually roamed Vernal in the pre-historic times. One of the biggest collection in the world. Mother nature pushes these bones upward, after they've been buried a long time; and they break top ground. We're still finding bones of stone to this day. My...More

This was a fabulous museum. It was very child friendly and I learned a lot from all the exhibits. A must see experience.

This is one of the only things open on a Sunday in the town of Vernal. That being said, it is worth the visit and very inexpensive price on any day of the week.

This is very nice museum. We got just what we were looking and hoping for! My children really liked the "glow in the dark rock" room. And the dinosaurs outside. We spent about an hour and a half there.

This is a great high tech museum. The dinosaurs are beautiful and very life like. They have a children's cave that has a lot for kids to do and see. It even has real bones and labs for the kids to see. It is right...More

I think it's $7. Might be free if you have a parks pass.
