  • A dinosaur park with a great future. Chance to talk with anthropologists and sea unique bones. So far its a too pricy for what is shown. Hope they add more attractions as the scenery is fantastic. But 55$ to see people working on bones, watching 2 movies and some outside artificial outside figures is quite a lot for normal tourist and that far out. Recommended anyway. 20$ entrance fee and have my 35$ donation for the idea behind it ;-)
  • I was amazed by the visit to the lab, where volunteers are working away at giant fossilised dinosaur bones. I visited soon after the canyon was opened. Worth the drive to find it.
  • Simply brilliant - well presented, great descriptions and immensely informative.
  • Enlightening and educating. Wonderful experience.
  • Worth the drive off the beaten track. An amazing place to see, and the view is fantastic.
