    Brilliant! Fantastic! Well worth the drop in, we did not intend to stop at Winton but saw the sign and thought we should. The cost was $55 per adult but we did not know that till we were their it was close to making us think about leaving with out going in. We are both very happy we stopped in well worth it. The team are very passionate about what they are showing you and it changes our understanding from school that Australia did not have dinosaurs.

    Great place to visit. The 3 hour ultimate tour is informative, fun and very interesting. The new parts of the museum are fantastic and can't wait for the next phase, Natural History Museum, to be completed in 2020. A must when near Winton.
