  • Totally rawrsome! Lots of information, plenty of models to see, touch and occasionally sit on. The staff were polite and very enthusiastic. We were a group of 7 aged from 2 to 68 and had no complaints. Activities include uncovering buried fossils, colouring in and completing a quiz as you make your way around the different scenes. Excellent value for money. Took us around 90 minutes to get around.
  • A small but well packed, well laid out venue. My grandson loved the fact he could touch and even encouraged to sit upon some of the exhibits and was proud as punch of his dinosaur hunters certificate at the end. Although small you can go around as many times as little feet and energy will allow. All the staff were brilliant very happy and approachable. Well done to all involved.
  • Came here on a rainy afternoon with our boys, aged 7 and 3. Our eldest really enjoyed the activity sheet as we went round the exhibit, and the youngest had a lot of fun "digging up fossils" and colouring in dinosaurs in the Craft Room. They pack a lot into a very small space, so it can feel quite crowded. The staff are great with the kids. We'd go back.
  • Aimed at the younger kids perhaps, with plenty of colouring in and digging in the sand type tasks; informative though even for adults who have been to more dinosaur museums than we care to count and a great way to fill in a couple of rain filled hours in Torbay
  • Let's not beat around the bush. This place is just a large room with lots of dinosaur models. Deffinatley one of those places that's as good as you put in to it. Took us about an hour to walk around. It's fun and something different but if you don't buy into it you won't get much out of it.
