Fun place for families with kids. Cool dinosaur exibits. Not real expensive. There is a gift shop for souvineers. Then you can take a hike up the road on dinosaur hill. Fun for everyone.

The museum delights kids from 2-82. It is both informative and interactive. They even host birthday parties here. You kiddos can run through the museum dodging streams of water being "spit" by one of the dinosaurs, or dig in the sand pit for "fossils."

I loved all of the hands on displays, earthquake simulator, and all of the great facts. It was fun standing inside of the dinosaur heart.

If anyone has grandsons, they know that dinosaurs are always a big hit. This museum is big enough to entertain younger ones but with lots of hands on things and educational information for the older kids....including adults. It has an area for a picnic lunch and let's your kid's inner paleontologist to come out! I have watched my one grandson... More

this was a great spot to seek out. If you have children they would love to see the ancient dinosaur bones still in the mountain We 4 adults enjoyed it

This is a smallish collection of dinosaur bones and various kid oriented displays. We had a good time, but have seen better.

I took 2 teenage boys here and we actually had a pretty good time. There are a lot of displays there that were found right in the area we were staying. There were several interactive activities. Overall we enjoyed the visit.

The museum is active on-going experience. It has real fossils and some replications. Due to its location near active on-going "digs" visitors can sign up for a half-day to a 5 day week experience of working with paleontologists on site and perhaps actually find a fossil. It is fun and takes as long as you wish to view. The show... More
