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.
The museum is very unique and includes a dinosaur garden on the west side with 17 full-size replicas including Tyrannosaurus, Utahraptor, Triceratops and others. Evening lectures are held in the summer evening. The Field House is part of Utah State Parks and sits on 2 acres in downtown Vernal.
