WALK WITH DINOSAURS

See thousands of fossilized dinosaur footprints!

DINOSAURS DISCOVERED HERE!

Here at the St. George Dinosaur Discovery Site at Johnson Farm you’ll enter a 200 million-year-old ecosystem that was once home to dinosaurs, fishes, plants, and more. Besides the actual fossils, you won’t want to miss the five life-sized models of prehistoric animals and the working fossil preparation lab.

Dinosaur Discovery Site’s Response to Coronavirus (COVID-19) as of 5/21/2020:

We are excited to announce we reopened the museum on May 15, 2020. We had a great weekend, and thank you to visitors who wore masks, waited patiently for their turn, and practiced social distancing! As new guidelines from the State of Utah have been issued, we have added Monday to our schedule and are now open 5 days a week. Our hours will be limited to 10 am – 5 pm, Thursday through Monday. Please, see our updated visitor protocols and procedures HERE.
We could use your continued support during these difficult times, follow the link, and DONATE NOW.
Thank you and stay safe!

PLAN YOUR VISIT

Don’t let the “farm” in our name fool you! To begin with, the facility is an indoor natural history museum built right over the discovery site. Dinosaur-enthusiasts of all ages are welcome! Generally, our exhibits focus on educating visitors and some younger children may need help reading and understanding the signs. However, the Dino Park and Classroom have activities designed just for them. In short, we have something for everyone — so come explore today!
