The Prehistoric Museum Announces Extended Weekend and Evening Hours


Do you love dinosaurs, rock art and science in general but have limited free time to
explore these interests during the work week? The Utah State University Eastern
Prehistoric Museum is thrilled to announce new extended hours designed to provide greater access to our community and travelling visitors. Building on our move to Thursday evening hours in June 2021, the museum is now open all seven days of the week and evenings until 7 pm three days a week! Starting in February, the museum will remain open to the public until 7 pm on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday and on Sundays between 9 am and 5 pm. So come on out to downtown Price and enjoy the museum before or after a great meal at one of our neighboring restaurants.
