The George S. Eccles Dinosaur Park is an eight-acre park featuring realistic full-sized dinosaur sculptures enhanced with sound, robotics and artistic details that resemble the real thing. As you enter the park your adventure begins in the Elizabeth Dee Shaw Stewart Museum, which features some of the latest dinosaur finds in Utah and from around the world. The museum includes full-size dinosaur skeletons, real dinosaur bones, teeth, and many other educational exhibits.
