  • I’ve visited this museum twice in my life. The first time was sixteen years ago when my oldest daughter was only 4 years old. She was terrified by the animatronic dinosaur having a bloody meal, and...  more »
  • Visited Fruita a few days ago and thought why not let's go visit this museum. It is small...but $9 a piece for 30 minutes was not bad. Lots of things ie interactive areas were blocked off due to...  more »
  • This is a great place to go take any kid that may have interest in learning about dinosaurs. We go there at least a couple times every year. Love to take the kids here and watch them learn!  more »
  • Fun for kids of all ages! The animatronic dinosaurs are semi in need of repair but I think that adds to their charm. Lots of fun and interesting dinosaur facts to be found throughout the whole museum. You can even try out an earthquake simulation. They also have a good sized gift shop.
  • Neat place in a fun little town. The displays are all very effective, the information is just enough that it isn't overwhelming. We enjoyed the animated dinosaurs and all the displays that have you a perspective on the size of these dinosaurs. Worth the visit and break for the heat.
  • We participated in the half day dig, after which we toured the lab and the museum. (with 6 year old and 17 year old.) The whole experience was wonderful! The museum was of the smaller size but very interesting and engaging. Learning how they use the lab and it's tools were great. But the dig was the icing on the cake. Thank you for the amazing day!
  • Great place to learn about the history of our planet. If you are in town or driving through check it out. You can spend a great time exploring dinosaur history hands on.
  • We had a lot of fun identifying the different dinosaurs and looking at all the fossils and footprints. They have done a great job to make it fun for the kids! ( Adults liked it too!)
