We heard about this museum from another family who were doing the Dinosaur Diamond while staying in Fruita, and the tip convinced us to stay in Blanding. What an excellent decision it was! The museum houses a vast collection of dinosaur movie memorabilia including many large and small models made by the founders. The displays include movie posters, models, early scientific monographs and other ephemera, telling the story behind the movies and charting the evolution of the dinosaur in the public imagination. It also includes an excellent display on the evolution of birds from dinosaurs, discussing the latest science - after about a year of intensive dinosaur education courtesy of my pre-schooler, I thought I was up on it all, but the museum had information I had not come across yet. If you are obsessed with dinosaurs, and dinosaur movies, this museum is a must-see. If you come, stay at the Stone Lizard Lodging.
