Kennecott Copper MineDinosaurs in Utah...who knew?! Nestled in a grassy valley just south of Salt Lake City you'll begin by visiting the world's largest dinosaur museum and The Museum of Ancient Life - Utah's own "Jurassic Park", and stand in awe as you watch a 3-D movie in the 6-story Mammoth Screen Theatre. Next, you'll head west a true natural wonder, Kennecott Copper Mine. Here, you will witness one of the two man-made landmarks visible from outer space!
