  • Good place to kill an hour. It's free/voluntary donation. The fossil room is small but there are lots of specimens in the small space. Downstairs is a kids play room with coloring pages and puzzles and whatnot. If you're lucky you can see a real life palentologist working on a real fossil.
  • Way smaller than I thought it was going to be. A bunch of dinosaur bones in the center of one long room. Better for older kids who like to read.
  • Is a small space with limited displays, but what it lacks in size/quantity it more than makes up with quality. Great for children. Additionally, the basement is home to the Carthage Paleontology Institute,which offers view into the work of the students.
  • I'm giving this 5 stars based on the experience-to-value ratio. The museum itself is very small, and it is essentially a single exhibit hall. However, the hall has a significant number of dinosaur skeletons, including a T-Rex. The museum itself is free (although donations are encouraged), so it's a great value. This is a great place for kids to experience dinosaurs. My two year-old loved it.
  • My wife and I took our two grandchildren to the dinosaur museum and we all had a great time.
