  • I found it on time for tour guides if you're interested. Some very interesting facts I didn't know. Nice employees, clean. Souvenirs not to expensive, most things are reasonable, a few things could break the bank... those items are gorgeous though and worth it! Food nearby literally walking distance, street tacos, hamburgers, pizza, you name it! I think for a little museum like this it could be a little cheaper. But it passed the time and we don't come out empty-handed. Everyone had an enjoyable time.
  • A great little dinosaur museum, they do real conservation and restoration work there and have really nice exhibits. A great stop if interested in paleontology and dinosaurs in general. Our tour guide was knowledgeable and did a great job! Once surrounding community. Good stop while traveling.
  • If you like dinosaurs, this is an awesome place. It has activities the kids can do and some hands on stuff to touch and feel. If you go during the week you can see people putting together skeletons and models as well as removing rock from the fossils.
  • The information is good, the skeletons are cool. There is a tiny hands on section the kids enjoyed. I even think it's a good size for the town it's in. But the cost for what you get is too high. I felt that way even with two kids under 4 that I didn't have to pay for. We spent as much time on the drive to and from the museum as we did inside it. They strong arm you into a green screen pic with a t-rex which is a separate $5 if you want it.
  • Good. Not amazing. My 4 and 6 year old were completely bored 2 minutes in. We spent more time and had more fun in the gift shop. But, good educational experience none the less
