  • Great stop for kids to see dinosaurs. There are many interactive elements, such as a dinosaur shooting water at a marked area for kids that want to get just a little wet, a neat earthquake simulator, and a hands-on dam building station. Some of the models are animatronic. Many of the bones are casts. There's a lab for researchers and is visible to all visitors through glass. Not expensive.
  • This is a small museum, suitable for 2 hours or less. It is very kid friendly and has several hands on displays.
  • Great place for kids and adults interested in dinosaurs. I really enjoyed it. Families up to 6 get in for $25 which is a good deal for what's inside. There are several interactive areas for kids.
  • alot of good information and cool fossils. taking family here over the break to show off my newfound dinosaur knowledge.
  • It was awesome. With 3 young boys I was thankful for the hands on displays. It was an amazing experience they learned a lot and was great to see things in person that they had only seen in books or on tv. Bring extra money there are a lot of really kool things in the gift shop!!
