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.

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!
