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

Lots of dinosaurs to see, exhibits that move, an earthquake machine, animated dinosaurs that spit and roar. Educational short movie my 5 year old granddaughter really liked.

Just before you cross over from Colorado into Utah, you will want to stop in Fruita and witness first hand the Dinosaurs discovered in this very area. This Museum is very child friendly, but don't let that fool you! There is something for EVERYONE at the Dinosaur Discovery Museum. Automated dinosaurs, simulated earthquakes, and actual paleontologists at work (in a... More

I'd read so many reviews that said this was 'just for kids'. But adults can learn, too. We thought they did a great job with their plaques and exhibits. They certainly have no shortage of fun things for kids to do, too.
