This museum is great for kids and adults alike. Amazing exhibits about local mines and the dinosaur tracks found there.

The museum was very interesting, and had many different ways to interact with the displays. Hands on activities, some games, an audio tour available on your phone, and even windows to watch people working on fossils, I'm assuming that happens in weekdays. There is a kids area to enhance their learning while they play. A great place at a great price. $6 for adults, and a family group fee is also available. Easy to get to off Route 6, so take an hour to stretch your legs while on a trip through Price.

Super cool place, made me feel like a kid again. Small place but really worth it. Tons of fossils and awesome displays. Would definitely go out of my way to visit this place again.

This isn't a bad little museum. There are some interesting things in it that I've never seen in other museums before. The reason for this is that a lot of the content is geared towards local history, which is what gives it a unique feel. It's pretty cheap, as well, and it has a small gift shop. It's definitely not a bad way to spend a few hours, and if you're interested in local history, such as old tribes that lived in the area and dinosaur bones found locally, you may really enjoy visiting.

Very cool museum, although my young kids hated it. They were super bored from the first 30 seconds. There was a small play area tho that they really enjoyed.
