1. Visit the Moab Giants Dinosaur Museum

At the top of the list of fun things to do in Moab with kids is visiting the Moab Giants. Make your way through the various tracks and see life-size dinosaurs in their "natural" habitat — the great outdoors. This dinosaur museum allows you a glimpse of a fantastic prehistoric world. 

Visitors of all ages can take a virtual 5D prehistoric underwater adventure. Expect to encounter everything from friendly sea turtles to a menacing Megalodon, making the walking theater a must-see when visiting the museum and region. 

2. Explore the Dinosaur Trails 

A treasure trove of dinosaur fossils awaits your discovery in the Moab area. Since the discovery of dinosaur remains in 1859, various other fossils have been found, making Moab one of the best places to visit if your kids love these prehistoric creatures. The Museum of Moab features an entire cast dinosaur skeleton. 

The Moab Giants Dinosaur Park offers a half-mile track with over 130 full-size reconstructed dinosaurs and the footprints they left behind. The trail is located in the magnificent desert landscape overlooking the famous Moab red-rocks, Arches National Park and La Sal Mountains. 

3. Let Your Kids Become Junior Rangers

Unique kid-friendly adventures in Moab include the Junior Ranger Explorer Guide and challenges. Free junior ranger activity booklets are available at visitor park centers or online. 

Allow the kids to complete the book, have fun and simultaneously learn and explore the Arches. The booklet has junior ranger activities you and the family get to conquer and finish. Once done, your junior ranger gets a ranger badge and signed certificate. It is a fun and educational journey in Moab for kids and the whole family to get involved in.
