This museum, located inside Thanksgiving Point in Lehi, around 20 miles from Salt Lake City, is a great place for both school trips and family outings. Build at a cost of over USD23 million, it is the biggest dinosaur museum in the world, with over 60 specimens impressively mounted. The displays include the bone-crunching T-rex, a 120-foot Supersaurus, a Quetzalcoatlus with a 40-foot wingspan. There are interactive sections and a Discovery room for children to learn more about these giant creatures. The XanGo Mammoth screen, featuring 3D films about marine and forest creatures, is another major attraction of this place. For more information check the website.
