Who would have thought you could find a museum in a small, quint town such as this one? I grew up in Price and although I no longer live there, I have fond memories of spending time inside the museum. It's not large but it does have some fascinating pieces. The best known is the T-Rex that fills the small space inside. As a young girl this piece always fascinated me, due to its size and those HUGE teeth! This area of Utah has had many dinosaur findings. Because of the mining industry you will see many footprint fossils on display here. Many of them found within the coal mines. It wasn't uncommon for the miners to bring home these fossils on a daily basis. You can't visit the museum without seeing the mummy they have on display! If visiting this area, make sure you stop in and take the small tour of the museum. You will be pleasantly surprised at what you see! more
