Initially wasn't keen to go but my husband insisted we went. Glad i went as it was actually a fun day out. Friendly and helpful staff. Very informative, affordable, lots to see and a fun quiz for everyone to take part in. Would recommend families to go as all the kids that were there enjoyed themselves. Very close to all... More

Our 8-year old granddaughter loved this and there is certainly a lot crammed into a very small space. Perhaps there is too much, as I quickly lost the ability to distinguish between fossil and re-construction and felt there was 'information overload'. I had to remind myself I am not eight, and from her point of view it was perfect. She... More

I visited with my two children aged 8 and 10 on a rainy August morning. The staff were lively, engaging and fun from the start. Although a fairly small venue it was packed with things to see and information.. Along with a quiz to do (which I ended up taking up taking far more seriously than the kids!). A little... More

The dinosaur world is a lovely interactive museum for kids and adults of all ages. The staff are very friendly and the displays are wonderful. The kids (and adults) can even search for fossils in the sand. We had an excellent time and would recommend it to anyone

This is a great place to visit with children on a wet day. It looks very small at first but it's like the tardis inside. So much to do! We enjoyed completing the quiz together and my little boy loved the fossil hunting and playing with the dinosaurs in the sand pit. Members of staff were friendly, helpful and great... More

Great for kids who are interested in dinosaurs or who are studying at school. Reasonably priced but small so only takes an hour.

A great little gem of a place. Went when it was raining so was a little busier than expected, but was very informative and had an interactive quiz which kept the whole family entertained. Very good priced too.

TobyTrex, Manager at Torquays Dinosaur World, responded to this review

Dear Reviewer, thank you for your visit and feedback. I’m pleased to see that the children enjoyed themselves and had fun, but disappointed that you think it was not value for money. We have filled the exhibition space with as many dinosaurs, fossils and other related exhibits as we could to provide an experience that visitors, large or small, will... More
