  • This place would have been great if it were more affordable. We paid a lot of money for how small it was and quickly we'd seen everything. We visited from Albuquerque, NM where our Dino museum is only...  more »

  • This is a museum and a resource center, so not only do they put fossils on display but also a place where folks work and uncover the fossils to clean and organize. You can see a room where people do the cleaning and recovery of these fossils. The exhibit itself is pretty small. They do have skeletons on display and even a real mummified baby mammoth. Its definitely a great place for kids to play especially younger kids. My son was 3 and he had a blast!
  • Not very large nor interactive. Probably about 30 dinosaur skeletons or casts on display. Well designed displays, but nothing really to do. Small children's area but kids lost interest after 10 minutes. Pretty expensive for what you can do. The window to watch behind the scenes work is probably the coolest part, except the guys were having lunch and not working while we were there. Gift shop was well stocked and very exciting for kids. Good place to spend about an hour max but wouldn't go out of my way.
  • Really fun little day trip for us. Every single staff member we saw greeted us and informed us of the guides tour schedule. They have hands on activities fur the kiddos and lots to see in their museum. Great local gem!
  • Small self walk tour. Wish they would change it up a bit. This is the second time. Has lots of great life size displays. Has a gift shop. I wish they would personalize the walk through with a guide that is a great story teller.
  • A small but really nice place. Very friendly helpful and engaging staff and just really great prices. They had very interesting bones and other exhibits to offer as well as a wealth of information. We will definetly be going back soon.
