  • Noticed this place as we drove on route 522. Laughed, but then stopped for a look. As others wrote a retro, kitschy place. Who would have thought a dinosaur exhibit in the Shenandoah Valley. Also a gi...  more »

  • The more ridiculous dinosaurs are my favorites. Definitely a fun place with a great gift shop, friendly staff too! You can take pictures sitting in King Kong's hand and coming out of a giant shark mouth, this is a great stop to make if you enjoy taking photos. If I was a child I'd have been in heaven, as an adult it was still very enjoyable! I had a hard time not coming home with all the stuffed dinosaurs and crazy gifts.
  • A genuine do not miss roadside attraction. Absolutely and unabashedly glorious in its tackiness. A piece of Americana that makes this nation great. Your kids will love it and you will marvel at how truly awful it is. Plenty of parking and a splendid gift shop that sells all sorts of tat, and fireworks. Has a penny squashing machine with 4 different designs. I loved it.
  • Cute outdoor place for Dino lovers. It is not huge, so you can take your time looking and reading about them. My kids had a good time but after an hour we were done.
  • If you love giant statues of dinosaurs then this is the place for you. A little run down but it adds to the charm. Strangest place. Our kids just love it.
  • One of a kind. Not to be missed. Statues of dinosaurs in a big yard. Great place to take kids. The gift store is amazing as well.
