Great place to visit every once in a while because of the different exhibits that come and go

My family and I found this place to be pretty incredible. We spent a number of hours inside of the museum and still weren't able to see everything. The dinosaur displays are fantastic and informative, and there are a TON of things to get children involved. My two girls (ages 5 & 1) had a complete blast.
Worth a visit!

This was a great museum but not as great as Natural History Museum at the University of Utah.

It's an enormous dinosaur museum. What's not to love? One of my favorite things is the erosion table, where you can play with sand and water to see the effects of erosion and how that helps people discover dinosaurs. But really, you get to build stuff out of sand and that's always fun.

I'm not a fan of natural history museums, but this place was pretty fun. There was plenty to see and do for my 3 young kids (4 and under)
