Remodeling at Dinosaur Museum

The Utah Field House has something new for patrons to enjoy. After being closed for several weeks, the outdoor displays of the museum have reopened after being remodeled. “We’re excited to have the garden back open after being closed for three weeks,” shares Field House Park Manager Steve Sroka. “Some of the dinosaurs are more visible now and we are just waiting for new fish to arrive.” Endangered fish will be placed in the pond in the coming weeks and the remodel has been met with excitement. “This is an educational way for us to talk about ecosystems,” says Sroka. The outdoor remodel is not the only facelift in process at the museum. New signage for the Vernal Information Center and colorful international flags are also expected to be displayed in the coming weeks.
