Taking Kids to the Price Dinosaur Museum

Today on our way home from camping (more on that later),
we stopped in Price to go to the dinosaur museum.
I had often wanted to go,
but today we happened to have time and were passing by,
and thought, why not?
It turned out to be a great day for a museum visit--
admission was free.
We spent a happy hour and a half in the exhibit halls.
I could have stayed longer, especially on the archaeological stuff,
but I figured we'd better quit before the kids got too tired.
There were a lot of impressive skeletons,
including this very cool mammoth (above).
Also there were a lot of interactive things,
like this reproduction Ute tipi:

Sophie especially liked the 'excavation sand boxes'
in the kids' corner.
She made all the little plastic dinosaurs circle around neatly.

They had a lot of fun in the sand boxes.
There were also large magnetic puzzles
(with dinosaur body parts)
and coloring pages and hand puppets--
it was very well designed for kids.
