Fodor's Review

Miners working in the coal fields around Price in the late 1800s often saw and excavated rare treasures that most scientists could only dream of finding—dinosaur bones, eggs, skeletons, and fossilized tracks. These are all on view at the College of Eastern Utah Prehistoric Museum. A second hall is devoted to early humans, with displays of beadwork, clay figurines, and other area artifacts, as well as a gigantic wooly mammoth and a saber-toothed cat. In 2008 the museum

began construction of a gigantic glass pyramid, which will house the world's only Mesozoic garden, with hundreds of plants similar to those that lived 65 million years ago.

The museum is also home to the Castle County Regional Information Center, where you can pick up area information, maps, and directions.
