NEW Dinosaur Exhibit Is Open!

Experience the life of a paleontologist through your child’s eyes in our one-of-a-kind exhibit. Kids can dig for fossils, take them to the lab and identify their find under a microscope, interact with real fossils found in Utah, and learn about kids who have actually discovered dinosaurs. It's a first of its kind exhibit where kids get to be the paleontologist and get to be hands-on with actual fossils and bones!
