    We left it too late in the day to enter the Museum, but the kids loved walking around the front garden area and seeing all the dinosaurs, very cool. The gift shop is fantastic, a big variety of items ...  more »

    The other reviews are true - it is a bit tired and faded and 90s. And it's not cheap. But my nephew LOVES it nonetheless - if nothing else, the outdoor area is quite fun, with the big dinosaurs and ro...  more »

    My partner is a great fan of dinosaurs, and this didn't disappoint. A lot of models of dinosaurs, including animatronic ones to keep you on your toes. Fossils of sea creatures are a must and they had ...  more »

    I had low expectations when I took four of my siblings, aged 4-17, to this museum; however, it was absolutely incredible! All of my siblings loved it! The atmosphere was exciting; the interactive nature of the exhibits had every age engaged. The staff was friendly, knowledge, and very focused on the children. The quality of the exhibits were exceptional; carefully thought-out and interesting. Overall, it was an incredible experience and I can't wait to go again 😊

    Calling all dinosaur lovers 🐊 This is a fun and educational centre with the most amazing gift shop I have ever seen. You could spend hours in there. If you love geology and fossils as well as dinosaurs then prepare to hyperventilate with excitement! ! The centre is quite small but we found we took awhile going through it because we read and absorbed everything. Mostly aimed at children and families but really it's for anyone with a passion for dinosaurs! Staff are helpful and friendly and will tell you interesting facts if you ask them. Interactive features, things to touch and explore and robotic dinosaurs that will roar at you and move around. Reasonable entry fees and worksheets for kids to complete during their visit that'll get them a free fossil. The only downside was the bathrooms were quite messy and I actually slipped over on the wet tiles. More checking and cleaning of the bathrooms would be a suggestion. .. Also did I mention how awesome the gift shop is!!? 😀💖 seriously, go check it out!

    The experience was good at the National Dinosaur Museum. At first the place looks like an ordinary kids museum, but lots of interesting information is upstairs. The admission fee is cheap. An activity sheet for young and old kids is available. You win a prize and certificate for completing it. Would recommend it, apparently a lot of special Pokemon can be found there when playing Pokemon Go. 4/5 stars.

    A great little museum with a very dense and interesting display of dinosaur info. Check out the shop and get your own 500 million year old fossil!

    Nice dinosaur museum. There is a lot of dinosaurs to see, and the history of dinosaurs is very interesting. It is a bit run down, and would be a lot better with a renovation, but it is a nice place to visit.
