The College of Eastern Utah Prehistoric Museum
Price, Utah is one of five accredited museums in the state of Utah and the only accredited museum located off the Wasatch Front. They offer comprehensive interpretative exhibits that will inform and entertain. The Hall of Man contains the world-renowned Pilling Figurines and the Huntington Mammoth, hailed as one of the most pristine examples of a Columbian mammoth to date. The Hall of Dinosaurs is host to a variable parade of skeletal mounts; the museum offers unique and original finds such as the Utahraptor, Animantarx, and the Gastonia burgei, as well as the “dinosaur pit” which contains two species in dramatic death poses.
Children love the Dino Discovery Area, a place to unearth dinosaur bones or search for pottery sherds. This area is also full of other hands-on activities, coloring pages, games, puppets and more. The Castle Country Regional Information Center (CCRIC) is located in the museum lobby and offers a wide variety of free informational brochures and literature. One of the friendly Information Specialists will be waiting to assist you with all of your information needs. Information Center and Gift Shop are free to the public.
