I was ready for another Museum with the largest yarn ball west of the Mississippi. I was glad we stopped and spent over an hour learning about what went on over at Dinosaur National Park a few million years ago. The "field house" aka museum...More

Although we visited vernal to see the dinosaur bones at the monument, I'm glad we also visited this museum too. It has interactive exhibits for young children and interesting facts for adults.

Its not big, but new and interesting. No, it doesn't have a lot of bones, but worth the hour it takes to go through. Outside garden is lovely too

We went with our 10 and 12 year old boys. We spent over an hour here and all enjoyed it. It was super informative for both children and adults.

This museum is great for the small town it's in. We went during some cold and rainy weather and it was way better than expected. The dinosaur info was very good and the kids had a great time.

After visiting the Mammoth Site and Dinosaur National Park, this museum was not as impressive for us. If we had our grand kids with us, they would have loved all of the replica dinosaurs outside the building. They did have some nice exhibits, but just...More

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