  • Went for a tour with a preschool group and had a lot of fun. Tour Guide was really lively and fun. I had been there before, but I did not know to what extent they supply the world with rare specimens. There bones are in over 230+ locations worldwide. Great place for kids to interact and have fun. Lots of varied dinosaur and megalodon fossils. Definitely worth a trip.
  • Fun place with a working research lab. Maybe not the most extensive collection, but what they have is very well done and enjoyable. Great place for kids to explore and low key enough to take your time and enjoy. It is a nice to have addition to the Pike's peak area typical attractions. Decent gift shop to boot with more than just the standard stamped stuff from China.
  • If your kids like Dinosaur train and other like shows this is a great stop. There is a free tour and it was informative and well done. The tour took about an hour and I would budget about an hour and half for the visit. The gift shop has everything dinosaur you could imagine. The kids left delighted and wanted to schedule a repeat trip.
  • This was the best museum EVER!!! Everyone was so friendly. We got to hold a real fossil. The guy that showed us around shared so much knowledge with us. We got to see people clean the fossils and piece them together. The guy that showed us around, actually goes out and digs up the dinosaurs. Everyone should check out this museum.
  • Small but informative. Tours are given and are very insightful. Great area for kids to explore and play. Certainly rivals that of other museums I'm the metropolitan area.
