Broadcast location: Utah State University East Prehistoric Museum
The College of Eastern Utah (CEU) Prehistoric Museum in Price showcases the areas' ancient past, when dinosaurs roamed here. They left behind their bones, footprints and other traces of their existence. The museum has many complete skeletons from the Jurassic and Cretaceous periods. The collection also contains many dinosaur tracks removed from local coal mines, dinosaur eggs, and other fossils. The CEU Prehistoric Museum currently operates multiple active dinosaur fossil quarries. The discovery of the remains of "Utahraptor" by museum personnel has put the museum on the cutting edge of scientific discovery. The CEU Museum is open daily 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. from April through September, and 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., October through March.
