    Doesn't take long to see. The downstairs is very cool though. Real paleontologists were working on extracting a triceratops fossil from it's casting they retrieved from Montana. There is a short film ...  more »

    Nice exhibits but very small. Downstairs has an activity area for children. Check website for times.  more »

    Dinosaur Discovery Museum is a very small museum, but the admission is free with a small suggested donation. It's just the right size for smaller kids who are still learning how to behave in a museum....  more »

    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.
