This is only a small place, but they've used the space well and included lots of displays and information. There are a good selection of hands-on activities such as excavating fossils from a sand pit (which kept most of children we saw busy for a good twenty minutes in each box!) and touching is allowed - especially a good idea...

We visited dinosaur world after a spectacularly bad morning in the local play gym on a rainy Friday whilst on our holidays. Having fairly recently been to the Natural History Museum in London with my dinosaur loving 5yr old daughter I'm sorry to say I didn't have hugely high hopes this experience would be in the same league (sorry dinosaur...

Visited on the 20th of July with an 8 year old and a 2 year old. First impressions weren't great and I didn't have high hopes. But I was blown away by the place. The attention to detail, the shear amount of information on display and the positive attitude of all the staff made this a fun and educational way... More

I love Dinosaurs. I have since I was young. After finding the venue which was surprisingly easy as it was directly on the harbour (the less said about my sat nav getting me there the better!!) we were greeted by a very enthusiastic man at reception. I don't know for certain but it felt like he was the guy behind... More

After reading through the reviews before my visit here today I was sceptical but as my 2 year old son LOVES Dinosaurs I thought it was worth the £6.95. After my visiting I think it was worth absolutely every penny. Under 2s are Free so there was no charge for him and i can come back again for free for... More
