‪Great Start to a Visit‬
יולי 2021
‪This is a cool way (especially for kids) to start your visit to the park. This museum/visitor center has a number of fossil remains that will give some perspective on the history of the area.‬

‪Cool fossils‬
אפר׳ 2021
‪Some of the exhibits were closed but they still had some neat displays of dinosaur fossils found in the area. Right behind the museum is one of the log trails. There also is a small gift shop that had 3X shirts. It should be noted that the larger gift shop at the other end of the parking lot had a lot of great items, but no 3X shirts. Large people like to visit national parks too! The museum only had portapotties for use outside, but the large gift shop had restrooms available inside.‬

‪We visited the interesting Rainbow Forest Museum, where we learnt everything we’ve ever wanted to know about petrified forest!
We also saw interesting displays on reptiles and dinosaurs, which inhabited this area.‬

‪Visitor center and short hike ‬
זוגות • ספט׳ 2020
‪Stop at this center and small museum on your way in or out of the park. From here, you can access the Long Log and Agate House trails. And, the giant log trail is behind the center. Take the short walk amongst the giant logs and see Old Faithful...the largest log.‬

‪Experience Life 221 million years ago‬
יולי 2020
‪The Rainbow Forest Museum located at the southern end of the Petrified Forest National Park brings to life the world of the Late Triassic some 221 million years ago.

The museumhas displays the skeletal reproductions of Placerias (hippo like), Postosuchus (alligator like) and Desmatosuchus another of the dinosaurs that lived in the rivers, swamps,forests and lakes of Late Triassic Arizona. To enhance the picture venture behind the museum/visitor center and stroll through the remains of giant trees that lie in petrified states on the Giant Lake Trail. Make sure to obtain a pamphlet which is numbered and contains a narrative explanation of each site. The trail is only about a 1/2 mile in length but has no shade. "Old Faithful Log" is a show piece on the trail. It clearly demonstrates the type of forest the once existed her in the Late Triassic.

The Rainboe Forest Museum is also the smaller of two visitor centers in the Petrified Forest national Forest the other is larger and located at the North en some 23 miles away. The park is about 26 miles in length. At both visitor centers children can complete a Jr. Ranger book to receive a pin. The various trails available are described by Rangers and qualified staff. Real time alerts about trails closing are available as well. The kids can also take part in a fossil dig. For adults they have a quality gift and book shop. The book "Dawn of the Dinosaurs" captures the essence of life in the Late Triassic. A short film which loops every 20 minutes is another educational tool to explain your experience in the park.‬

‪Great place to stop at visitor center for information and to check out the exhibits. Small museum so it doesn’t take long to view. ‬

‪Small but significant...‬
ינו׳ 2020
‪Be sure to stop in to the Rainbow Museum either on your way in or out. It’s just after you enter on the South side of the park. There’s a short fil playing continuously that is very informative and interesting.
Seeing the artifacts and reading some of the displays will give you a good perspective on the enormous time span of the magnificent trees you’ll see along the way.
Some great souvenirs and reasonably priced as well.‬

‪Interesting History‬
אוק׳ 2019
‪We enjoyed taking a few moments to learn a little history of past animals. Plus, the polished petrified wood was interesting. Plus, there is a small gift shop. This is the last restroom stop before leaving the park if you are exiting this direction.‬

‪Stop!‬
יולי 2019
‪As you are entering/leaving it is easy to overlook this small building on the side. You have to stop and visit to see some thrilling exhibits and artwork. It is smaller than the other welcome center on the other end but has some very unique collections.‬
