  • This museum of natural history delves into what the land around Rockford and upper Illinois area was like in the dinosaur era. From the plants and soil to the prehistoric animals that roamed this area...  more »
  • This is a nice local museum and home to the famous Jane dinosaur. It is a nice local museum but not comparable to Chicago museums. It is not large but very nicely done. 
  • 2nd visit, if you don't like crowds this is the place to visit! People there are very friendly The whole museum is very clean!

  • Dinosaurs! Art! Love this place. They do are really cool beer tasting event in February too! Definitely a must see for the area!
  • The museum is awesome. If you've not been you need to go. It is small, but so excellent!
  • My parents came in from WI with my niece and nephew and spent the afternoon here. Admission prices were reasonable, exhibits were interesting, and they highly recommend it to others.
  • It's easier for me to learn about something I know very little in a small, well-run museum liike The Burpee. The dinosaur exhibits are spectacular. I even ended up going to help on the dino dig at Ekkalaka. 'ut
  • Fun location for someone needing to do an afternoon. Along the Rock River, and connected to a larger complex for learning and entertainment, the museum itself is a lot of fun.
