  • 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.
