  • This is a great place to go with the family. Both the museum and village are quite nice
  • Really great for local and interesting artifacts. They had an awesome dinosaur display and lots of fun stuff for kids to do while it was on. Great programs for kids.
  • We took our 3 and 6 year old here to spend some fun time taking in the Dino exhibit. The display is quite small and there wasn't anything to engage the 3 year old (who is in LOVE with dinosaurs!). Our 6 year old was kept busy for about 10 mins then everyone was ready to go home. Sadly it was a bit underwhelming.
  • Great museum. The dino exhibit is fantastic and fun for the whole family! Truly lovely staff!!
  • Great exhibits and fun experience. My son had a blast at the dinosaur exhibit.
