Museum Experience

Nestled in the heart of a resource rich archaeological, paleontological and geological play land, our museum has much to offer in diverse prehistoric subjects. One thing that makes our museum so unique is that our items on display were actually discovered within a stone’s throw of the museum location! Dinosaurs and other finds from this region are world-famous, but only here can you see them surrounded by their original context.

Dinosaurs, Ice Age and Archaeology!

Another unique aspect of our museum is that we are not simply a dinosaur museum. We encompass so much more. This rich region spews forth paleontology, archaeology and geology in abundance, and it is with this advantage, we strive to bring the cutting-edge world of discovery directly to you. The Utah State University Eastern Prehistoric Museum is one of only five accredited museums in the state of Utah, and the only accredited museum located off the Wasatch Front, as well as a state and federal repository.

Come experience life three billion years in the making!
