Utah Field House of Natural History
(A virtual tour of the Vernal museum...)
These pages provide a virtual tour Utah Field House of Natural History in Vernal, UT.  If you are ever in the area, this museum is a MUST SEE.  It's remote location hides the true workings of the museum.  It is an active paleontologist's institution.  Several new dinosaur species have been excavated by museum staff and a newly renovated museum building is in work.  Recently, the Denver Mfsuseum of Nature & Science (DMNS) led an excavation in the Green River formation, Parachute Creek member to help recover fossils for the new building's exhibits - something we call "The Great Wall of Vernal".  Don't miss the 24' x 12' wall coming in 2004 to the museum.  For more on the excavation, see Green River Fossil Excavation in Bonanza, UT.
