Expérience organisée par Spencer

  1. 2 heures
  2. Proposée en Anglais

Au programme

We'll begin with an in-depth tour of our Past Worlds gallery and end with a behind-the-scenes visit inside our Paleo Lab. In the gallery, we will talk about dinosaurs found in Utah (some known exclusively from our own collections) and explore the ecosystems and adaptations that make these animals so fascinating. Inside the Paleo Lab, we will get a sneak peek at the projects that our paleontology volunteers are working on and learn about the techniques used to prepare our most recent discoveries.

The tour is for adults and teens 13 years or older. Teens 16 and under must be accompanied by an adult. Maximum number of participants is 6. Admission is complementary with purchase of the experience. Admission fees cannot be deducted from the package price. Tour length is approximately 2 hours or so, depending on group discussions.

Per CDC guidelines, face masks are recommended but not required for the gallery portion of the tour. However, face masks are required when inside the Paleo lab for the safety of all parties.

Hi, I’m Spencer Bronte. I have been passionately in love with dinosaurs for as long as I can remember! I have worked at the Natural History Museum of Utah for 8 years, and I’ve studied dinosaur paleontology for many more. I have found and excavated fossils in the field, prepared them in the laboratory, have cared for them in our collections. I help train and mentor staff and volunteers at the museum about paleontology and dinosaurs, and have been giving tours through AirBnb's Utah's Dinosaurs Experience for years now. I simply love dinosaurs, and I would love to share the science behind these fascinating animals with you!

What a great tour. I took much more away from this experience than I would have just walking through the exhibit on my own. Spencer’s enthusiasm and genuine love for dinosaur’s definitely shines. We were very excited to be able get in and see the actual paleontology lab.

Spencer is such a perfect human being for this sort of thing. I have severe social anxiety so I don't tend to do tours, but we had friends joining us in Utah this time around. One universal interest for us has always been dinosaurs. I decided to put aside my comfort and resigned to tagging along behind. Spencer was such a kind, passionate, and inviting personality that I found my anxiety flew right out the window. I was engaged, asking questions and putting in commentary. This was all on top of how insanely knowledgeable Spencer was. Any off the wall question or thought we had, he knew exactly what we were talking about. He also had no problem telling us when he did not know an answer, or only had theories with no concrete response. It was such a refreshing experience. Aside from Spencer himself, the museum's bountiful selection of LOCAL fossils was so fascinating to see. So many creatures all in one area. I hppe to do this tour again. I plan to bring more people in the future.

Spencer really is the best guide to walk you through the age of the dinosaurs. The museum is beautifully curated with so many different specimens and views of Salt Lake City. I never thought I'd learn so much more about dinosaurs and also have the opportunity to ask so many questions during the course of the tour. Spencer is engaging and thoughtful and just wants to geek out with you on your shared passion for dinos. I highly recommend this tour if you find yourself in SLC.

This was, hands down, the highlight of my trip to Salt Lake City. Spencer's enthusiasm for dinosaurs was infectious. He's a great storyteller and really breaks down the science in fascinating ways. I learned so much.

Wow, it was such a nest experience. I would not have learned nearly as much without a guided tour. He was passionate and well informed Spencer made us all feel comfortable answering questions, making the experience that much better. The only thing I would recommend is to wear comfortable shoes. Me and my partner wore heals. Whoops! It was so so worth it.

I’ve done this tour 3 times and it’s still just as exciting each time. Everyone we take with us cites this as the best part of their ENTIRE visit. Spencer is incredibly knowledgeable and experienced, so the tour feels very professional. But he’s also SO into the subject, so if you have questions or want to dive into certain things, he’ll gladly go as deep as you want. I can’t rate this highly enough.
