  • We attended with children 5 and 2. They enjoyed the animated dinosaurs however quickly became bored. This experience is suited to older kids or dinosaur lovers. Quite expensive for what we got.  more »

  • Great place to run around. Lovely dinosaur display outside in the garden. Upstairs has robotic dinosaurs and plenty of information (not suitable for timid or very young children). There is also a lounge area with dinosaur puzzles and colouring and a shop. They also have two search and finds for different age groups (with a prize for finishing it).
  • Interesting to see some rocks and minerals as well as variety of dinosaur models. Five stars from children! May be a little more activity would attract many families to this wonderful place!
  • Good place for kids. But it is a tiny space for those giant creatures. Much different from imagination when getting inside. Wish it would have more space, more outdoor decorations like "jurassic park movie"... And, if is available, plz, make it more easier for visitors to follow the historic timeline and see the all animals/plants/fossils... of each period.
  • It's great to pop in but don't expect to be there for long. Free parking and my toddler had as much fun outside looking at the dinosaurs outside as well as the mechanical ones inside.
  • My family loved this place lots of dinosaurs to see. We took the free tour which was fantastic. The young staff were great getting the young kids involed in the tour.
