  • The museum is really small (like 30 mins to go through it all pretty well), but it it's free (they do have a donation box), quiet, and clean. There are several large dinosaur skeletons and displays of ancient creatures in a variety of sizes. We can typically see somebody working on some bones through the large observation window, which my kids enjoy. Note: I don't that it is open on the weekend, and it closes at like 4 or 5pm on weekdays, so don't plan on an evening/weekend visit.
  • This museum seems like an afterthought, BYU spends a lot of effort and money on other facilities, but not this place. The arrangement of the displays is not very child friendly. Lots of fossils are right there with no case or roping off which creates many attractive nusances for children, not exactly discouraging touching or protecting the assets. But I keep going back because my little ones love dinosaurs and love to run the circle around the museum. So it could be a lot better, but it's not bad. :)
