Prehistoric Museum - Home of Al

This is a great museum, full of fossils, dinosaurs, geology, and Paleo People and First Nations exhibits. There was a special exhibit of baskets and rugs that was amazing. Very reasonable $6 fee for adults.

Prehistoric Museum - Home of Al

Great exhibits of local dinosaurs from Cleveland Lloyd Quarry and Pleistocene animals (local mammoth). Home of Al, the official Utah dinosaur (Allosaurus).

[Brad, 11/18/2001]

Al used to be Utah's official dinosaur, but he was later eclipsed by Utahraptor, a sexier saurian. Both are on display inside the museum, and there are outdoor statues of these killer beasts in attack poses.
