The Prehistoric Museum, USU Eastern: Located in downtown Price, Utah this museum offers the visitor extensive exhibits in paleontology, archaeology, and geology. The museum hosts a number of full body dinosaur mounts, including the Utahraptor, the Allosaurus, and the largest mounted ankylosaur skeleton, Peloroplites. Visitors love viewing real dinosaur bone throughout this hall. In the Hall of Archaeology you will find the world-renowned Pilling Figurines, some of the most pristine and ornate examples of clay Fremont figurines in existence. You will also see basketry, pottery, hunting implements, stone tools, and skeletons of several Ice Age mammals. For the little ones, there is a Discovery Area which has a delightful dinosaur “dig”, child-sized pithouse, and other hands-on activities. The museum art gallery hosts several art exhibitions per year. The Prehistoric Museum is your one-stop destination to discover eastern Utah’s prehistory.
