  • This place is freaking awesome!!! They have some live animated dinosaurs that shocked my kids. The staff is very knowledgeable and they even teach how to identify the dinosaurs bones of you were to find any.
  • We have a pass and go all the time. Love it. There's a yearly pass that allows families to get into all the museums and the math and science center. I recommend it.
  • 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.
  • Absolutely fantastic Dinosaur Museum. Such a great place for people of all ages to come learn about the history of the dinosaurs and the role the wild west had to do with it!
  • Had a great time. The staff were very nice.
