    Excellent museum placed right over the quarry, kids can touch the actual bones. Rangers very knowledgeable and helpful. Shuttle to Quarry every 7 mins. Auto tour is great way to see sights on hot afternoons. Informative tour booklet for only $1. Petroglyphs viewable from the road.

    Great park well worth visiting. Take the shuttle up to the exhibit hall to see real Dino bones partially excavated. It was really cool!

    Beautiful scenic park combines geology and paleontology. Be sure to do a ranger-led activity while here, as all the rangers are very knowledgeable and great with both kids and adults.

    You'll be amazed at the number of bones on display! If you are passing nearby, this is worth a stop, especially with the kids. A cool oasis on a hot drive.
