  • The name makes it sound like a major government museum. It's actually more like a badly run family business from the 70s. It's expensive at $45 for 2 adults 3 kids. It's very small. Most of the displa...  more »

  • Great place for young kids. They will love playing with replica dinosaurs outside. Gifts shop is great. Lots of variety and not too expensive. Must visit for families with young kids.
  • It's a lot better when it's not super crowded, so be sure to check what times are the busiest and plan accordingly. The gift shop is amazing, I could spend all day just looking in there
  • The kids will love it. Large scale models outside are fantastic...but inside is run down and one visit is all you are likely to want. Getting a Scoopon is a good idea, but mind the small print as it is not valid for weekends.
  • Great spot for the prehistoric die hard. My toddler was smitten by the displays on the outside of the venue. There's lots of photos taking opportunities and a great gift shop that sells awesome dinosaur related games and toys for the kids.
  • A fun experience. While the museum (upstairs) isn't very big there are some interactive area downstairs, with games, puzzles, etc. The gift shop is quite large, with a wide range of products. A great place for small children. The Dinosaur Museum is located in Gold Creek which offers a nice proximity to other attracts for a great family fun day out. For any young children who like dinosaurs this is a must see!
