BYU Museum Of Paleontology Reviews & Ratings
A wonderful place for anyone who likes science, dinosaurs, or both. It is a small building for a museum, but they were able to comfortably fit more exhibits in it than I would have expected. There are fossils of fish, mammals and invertebrates as well as the inevitable dinosaurs. I thought the displays were well done and the plaques were very informative. I'm glad I went.
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.
For it being free I'll give this 5 stars. Basically you walk in a small circle or rooms one of which you can see people working on fossils behind glass. A few good dinosaur skeletons but not much else. I wouldn't plan to spend much more than 20 minutes here's and that's with reading everything in sight.
The best attraction in Provo and surrounding areas! Learn about Dinosaur Jim and get inspired by his amazing story of discovery. See the only dino that is named after an apostle. Have you mind blown by the largest sloth you could imagine.
This museum is pretty small, so don't come expecting something like the dinosaur museum at Thanksgiving Point. It's free, though there is a place for donations and not crowded. For the size they have a good variety of fossils. There is also a window where you can watch them working. The only problem is the hours. It's only open Monday through Friday and they close at 5.
