Hang Out With Your Favorite Prehistoric Pals During Dinofest at the Utah Museum Of Natural History

Millions of years ago, dinosaurs roamed throughout Utah. The 23-ton Apatosaurus wandered around, snacking on plant life, and the carnivorous allosaurus preyed upon other dinosaur species. The terrifying Utahraptor walked and ran on two clawed feet, and may have even had feathers! If you’re fascinated by prehistoric creatures, Utah has plenty of places to learn all about them, and the Utah Museum of Natural History’s Dinofest is one of our favorites.
