Utah Fieldhouse Brochure

So much time is revealed here, even more geologic time than in the Grand Canyon. Within an 80-mile radius of Vernal, evidence of the entire Earth's history is visible. At its center is the Utah Field House of Natural History State Park Museum. The museum is a 22,000-square foot structure to preserve and reveal the wealth of prehistory found within the Uinta Basin. Vivid murals and tile floors help visitors connect geological time to real-time places in Vernal.

Within the journey through time, are full skeletal replicas of the great beasts and other natural history exhibits. Curious visitors, both young and old, can do their own investigating with books, models, puzzles, and bones and chisels.

Outside the museum, and providing the greatest appeal to passing visitors, is the Dinosaur Garden, a prehistoric zoo of full-size replicas ranging in age from Pennsylvanian through Pleistocene. The garden includes a 20-foot Tyrannosaurus with six-inch, knife-like teeth, a horned Triceratops, six-ton Stegosaurus, winged Pteranodon and other full-size prehistoric animal replicas.
