  • 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.
  • This was a great experience. unbelievable to see so many dinosaurs bones in one area.
