The DinosaurAH!torium Foundation is the 501(c)(3) branch of the St. George Dinosaur Discovery Site at Johnson Farm (SGDS). The foundation operates the museum in partnership with the City of St. George, who owns the building and main fossils. The mission of the SGDS is to research, preserve, interpret, and exhibit the fossil resources of the area and the story of this specific site for the benefit, education, and enjoyment of our valued communities and the scientific world.
Our Response to COVID-19 :
To all our amazing visitors,
We are so excited to have the museum open again, please helps us all by following the posted guidelines below when you come to see us.
-wear a mask or face covering when inside the building. And if you are feeling unwell, please, stay home.
-practice social distancing and stay at least 6 feet from other visitors.
-follow the directional signs and notice how the museum exhibits are one-way.
-wash your hands often and for at least 20 seconds.
-notice our hand-sanitizing stations throughout the museum.
-help our staff stay safe too:
*use a card/contactless chip,
*step back from the counter until the transaction is complete,
*follow their directions, such as waiting for a space to be available or taking turns when items are being rung up.
Some areas are limited to one family group at a time. This includes the gift shop and the intro video theater. In the gift shop, please note, many items are for display only and can be purchased by speaking with a staff member. This is to help reduce the number of people touching the items you purchase. In the theater area, we have spaced the chairs out and limited it to 10 people at a time. This means both these areas will have wait times, so please be kind when we ask you to wait.
Some areas are closed. This includes the classroom and the fossil lab. The classroom is where our hands-on activities took place, but we feel it is safer to close the area until we return to a more normal world. The fossil lab is mainly closed to keep our high-risk volunteers safe and healthy.
Some exhibits have restricted access. This exhibit is in the Dino Park where we have temporarily blocked access to the climb-on dinosaur.
We are limiting the number of family groups through the museum at one time. Please, be patient and understanding if staff ask you to return at a later time or ask you to wait until another family group exits the museum.
Behind the scenes, we have sanitizing protocols in place for all high-touch surfaces, exhibits, facilities, and various areas of the building.
