Following major budget cuts in 2010 and 2011, the USU Eastern Prehistoric Museum began relying heavily on membership and admission fees to operate.
Membership dollars have helped the museum in several ways. The Utahraptor skeleton that now greets visitors in the lobby has been updated. Renovations to the Fremont pit house diorama were made to make it look lived in. A new pit house in the children’s discovery area was built and several other projects have been completed because of these fees.
Increasing museum membership will help continue work to protect and exhibit the fossil and archaeological record of eastern Utah. Members receive fantastic benefits while helping the museum fulfill it’s educational mission by providing funds to stay at the leading edge of regional research, education and exhibit.

Unlimited admission to USU Eastern Prehistoric Museum and the Museum of Moab for one person.
