We spent a very enjoyable evening with friends, Dr. Mark and Leslie Donaldson and their granddaughter at Thanksgiving Point, in Lehi, Utah. Thanksgiving Point is centrally located about half-way between Salt Lake City and Provo just off Interstate 15 at the Point of the Mountain. Their signature water tower is easily seen from both directions just west of the freeway.
We decided to visit the Museum of Ancient Life, Dinosaur Museum:
At the Museum of Ancient Life you can roam among the dinosaurs, explore a Carboniferous Forest, and dive deep into a Cretaceous Ocean. The museum has one of the world’s largest displays of mounted dinosaurs with 60 complete dinosaur skeletons in their galleries, along with more than 50 hands-on exhibits. This is a fun destination where you can enjoy learning about pre-historic animals, playing with toy dinosaurs in the Erosion Table, and digging for fossils in the quarry dig.
