  • Fun place to pass time. There are three activities for kids to do. One is mining rocks, it's fun and they get to take a small vial home of them. There is digging for fossils, which you also get to tak...  read more »
  • Was expecting cheezy tourist trap. Boy was I wrong. Kids had a great time and there was a lot of very interesting things. It doesn't compare to the Tyrrell Museum, but complements it with more fun and memorable things for kids to do. We go to the Tyrrell every year, and this is the perfect antidote for kids who start to get bored with the Tyrrell. I'm glad we came!
  • This is a fantastic place to take kids! My kids absolutely loved the facility, the animatronic T-Rex was fantastic, very realistic, the playground is great, the displays are fascinating. We paid to do the fossil dig and gemstone collection, the fossil dig was great, staff was very knowledgeable and friendly. My children had a great time going through all the fossils, unearthing a T-Rex skeleton and were thrilled that they got to keep whichever fossil they liked best. The gemstones are nice as well, but my younger one didn't have much patience for it - my daughter loved it however. The only issue I had with it was that the water area had a significant amount of bleach in it, which could harm the kids hands & clothes, so I kept them in the dry section.
  • I brought my family into this store to buy some keepsakes. We had our eye on a few really amazing pieces and fossil displays, I asked the guy at the counter if the prices were final or if he was flexible. His response was quite abrupt in my opinion, my question was one of due diligence not meant to insult. I would expect that the answer of either yes or no would be delivered with top notch customer service, especially when selling merchandise that costs upwards of $20,000 dollars. Today you lost out on a sale of $2000, I proceeded down the road and was treated very fairly and found a great peice. I will not be back.
  • The kids loved the all of the activities offered. We also enjoyed the fossil exibits. However, we purchased a 5 fossil dig kit (thinking it had 5 fossils in it). When my kids had finally chipped away all of the kit and only found one fossil, they were extremely upset. Seems like false advertising to me. A 5 fossil kit should have 5 fossils in it. Not one of 5. The box should be much more specific. 😡
  • Great selection. Our son many kids are...enamoured with dinosaurs. This place was great for finding those unique toys that will help him relive this great experience once we are back home.
