This place is a must visit for dino lovers. We did not have high expectations for a dino museum in a small town in rural Utah, but this place was amazing. Not only were the fossils great, but they have a pop culture theme going...More

Inexpensive dinosaur museum contains fossils and a wide variety of displays. Lots of old movie posters from the dinosaur genre.

A gem!!! Don't expect the British Museum; instead, stop and savor this delightful and quirky collection of dinosaur and dinosaur-movie memorabilia! I totally loved it and hope to return someday!

You could spend several hours in this very well designed museum. Educational and fun. A surprise to find such a great museum in a small town.

We didn't think the museum was even open. I tried the door, and it was unlocked but there was no one at the desk,. However, a nice & very knowledgeable lady soon appeared. No offense to Blanding, but it looked like a pretty sleepy burg--not...More
