I've taken my kids many times and they always enjoy themsevels. Lots to do and interact with. The price is right and its just a great way to spend time with the kids.
In this block there are quite a few things to see and do...dinasaur museum was very interesting and educational, but samples at the popcorn factory made it hard to decide on flavors.
Before arriving at Dinosaur Depot, I read reviews. Some said it was a money trap. Some said it was a tourist trap. As we drove to Dinosaur Depot, I was a bit skeptical but forged ahead. It turned out to be great. The people were nice. The displays were fun. The kids were having fun. The sounds of children laughing... More
This is a small museum but it has some amazing claims to fame. Many specimens from this area and lab are on display in major museums around the world.

We stopped here after taking in the train ride. Its a fun little museum that has their own "claim to fame" with a certain dinosaur found in the area. One of the volunteers was working on cleaning some bones while we were there and took the time to show us more artifacts. The kids really enjoyed it!
We stopped here for an hour as we passed through Canon City. The depot is a great place for kids who love dinosaurs. There are interactive exhibits, dinosaur bones they can touch and even dig for. The museum is small, but there was plenty to see and do that kept the kids engaged for quite awhile. Recommended.
Yes it is small, yes they tend to be a litle overbearing, but the upstairs, hands-on interactive center was great. The Canon City area has produced some of the very first dinosaur fossil specimens in the country. The museum is built around the stegosauris that it is famous for. For the inexpensive price it is a great place to chill... More
