  • Dinosaurs, and fossil collection is fantastic. Kids love it.
  • Small but great. Interesting place to take the kids .
  • Been here multiple times. They always have very nice and informative staff. They take the time to answer any questions. If they aren't 100%, they find someone that is. They also host Birthday Parties for kids, which are always a good time.
