  • 非常好的博物馆,有很多恐龙化石,关键是还可以允许摸,感觉很真实,人不多,所以也很清净,就是票价不便宜,还在旁边的恐龙商店邮寄了几张名片 
  • A great Park. Inside the Park building with bones of dinosaurs. All the information can be read in English next to each exhibit. Bottom Museum excavations and large screen with the story of how the dinosaurs died. 30 minutes from the city centre to the 35 bus.

  • 自驾的话交通倒是挺方便的,大山铺高速公路下来就是,博物馆很专业,专门的恐龙博物馆,游览时间一个半小时左右。附近除了博物馆就没有什么其他东西了,所以建议还是开车来比较好。

  • World-class museum. One of the only places on earth to see dinosaur bones in situ. It's a bit of a drive from the city center.
  • Arguably better than the Smithsonian collection. I have been here twice, great place to take the family
  • Beautiful Fossils!
  • …怎么那么多人啊😂
  • 还行,比较好玩,就是有点偏僻
