  • I loved this Museum! Probably the best $5 you can spend at a fossil museum. One of the paleontologist gave me an impromptu explanation of what he and his colleagues were working on at the actual dig site and some of the amazing things they have uncovered. I will be going back again over we summer.
  • I'm a science nerd. Loved that this is a relatively new site with a dig progressing and a lab and science center on site. Wow!
  • Nice place for a short visit. Not really expensive. Has a gift shop.
  • This is a great little museum and actual fossil site. I will visit again if the opportunity arises. It was well worth the $5 admission and then some. Great hands-on displays for children to learn and unique venue to observe professionals working on fossils.
  • My family and I enjoyed exploring the Gray Fossil Site. There are plenty of hands on activities for the kids and plenty of information on the paleontology of the site.
