  • Very small but the kids enjoyed. Teen working was full of sass when my 5yr old nephew went upstairs to show his mom the Dino tails attached to him. There's only one way in/one way out. They're not exactly inconspicuous.
  • Was small but had a selection of things to see. Was well put together and had special activities for kids.
  • Dinosaurs, and fossil collection is fantastic. Kids love it.
  • Our dinosaur loving child had a blast here.
  • Small but great. Interesting place to take the kids .
