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.

Built right on the site of uncovered dinosaur tracks, this museum has a number of dinosaur artifacts from the area, as well as nicely displaying the dinosaur prints. Well worth a visit if you are in the area.

This is very interesting for young and old. My grandkids really liked the scavenger hunt in the main building. They loved looking for dino tracks in the sand outside.

This museum was built 17 years ago right over the fossil-bearing rock in which dinosaur footprints, teeth and bones were found, including a mold of some skin. You can even see where a carnivorous dinosaur sat down and took a break. Long-time docent Keith Van...More

The first time we were here, there was a tent set up over the dug hole! Now there is a beautiful museum to house all of the findings, and additional palentology information. Great for school age kids to visit, or scouts earning badges.More

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 spent probably 1.5 hours and had lots of kids in our group. If you love dinosaurs, you can definitely spend a lot more time here. Lots of info that goes over my head :)
