St. George Dinosaur Discovery Site – $3 or less per person
This museum began quite by accident! In 2000, Dr. Sheldon Johnson was leveling a hill on his property when he encountered a thick sandstone layer with dinosaur footprints! They opened their farm to the public and paleontologists uncovered thousands of fossils.
Utah Paleontologist Jim Kirkland said, “The St. George track site is not only the oldest Jurassic dinosaur site in Utah, it is the best basal Jurassic track site in western North America.”
