  • It's nice to see the dreams of somebody come to life in such a creative way! And, it was a relief to see how actually science-based it is- you never know with roadside attractions.  more »

  • Really cool place! Fun for anyone who enjoys dinosaurs to explore around. Cool information and nice little gift shop. I believe it was $12 per person to walk around. Worth it for the experience, there's no animation all just fixed statues but still fun.
  • Open 7 days a week, year round. Current (March, 2018) hours: 10AM-5PM. Summer hours (no definition of "summer") 9-6. I'd assume when kids are out of school, the days are long & evenings warm. Admission: $12. Dogs OK on leash.
  • A delightful roadside attraction. A nice walk through the past. Both the ancient past of the days of the dinosaurs and the recent past of roadside stops that dotted America's highways. A must visit as you're driving along the Southern Oregon Coast.
  • Was a fun thing to stop and do on our way along the coast. As adults we breezed through but I can see where kids could spend more time and really get the full experience. Beautiful setting for it and was glad to see they had someone touching up and maintaining their dinosaurs.
  • Definitely in the vintage 1950's or 1960s hokey style, but absolutely worth it! Still run by nice family who started it. Lots of stuff in gift shop to select from, to bring trip-token gifts home. Nice selection of rocks, crystals, other stuff. Beautiful walk through forest, punctuated with dinosaur models...great to get the circulation going after too much driving, and helps kids "get the wiggles out".
