Definitely visit this museum if you are interested in local paleontology and anthropology! The displays are really well explained and the exhibits tell about the local digs in and around nine mile canyon. Heronknd

This museum in downtown Price, Utah is well worth a visit. We went to see the dinosaur displays but came away also greatly appreciating the large quantity of Native American artifacts.
