  • Worth the drive. Some amazing sights and lots of educational information. The staff are the high light of the visit. Super friendly. Great place for lunch and a coffee.
  • Worthwhile adventure, so much to see and learn. Kids had a blast and so did we as parents. Plus they have a free printable resource for kids, which is great if you homeschool or just want to get something more out of the trip. Food was way over priced so take a packed lunch and definitely take a water bottle, remember to take your rubbish and dispose off properly. But staff were so good and were happy to answer kids questions and it was just an all round feast experience that my kids still talk about.
  • Absolutely loved this experience and would definitely recommend. Great way to spend several hours! You can bring a picnic and sit around eating it looking out over the jump up, and *very highly* recommend heading up the drive for sunset views, just off to the side of the drive up to the museum-- incredible!!
  • Was an amazing experience for my family and I... the bones of the dinosaurs were very impressive and the museum was worth the drive out. Would definately go again if the opportunity should arise.
  • Will be going back for more. Recommended planning ahead and give then a call. It can get very busy.
