I took my brother and his wife to see this exhibit. What a collection. I highly recommend visiting this facility, they can charge twice as much and it would still be worth it. (fee is very low) The staff was very friendly and took time to answer all of our questions. They are very knowledgeable and very professional, I learned... More

My 27 yr old daughter still loves dinosaurs so this was for her but my husband & I liked it too. Perfect for a rainy day, indoor activity. The two dinosaurs outside are perfect for photo ops! Price for adult admission @ $11 each was a little high for our budget but my daughter paid since she is the one... More

I know it requires a considerable sum of money to employ paleontologists, but for what it costs to get in, I expected a bit more. I and the kids were less than impressed.

This was a small museum with interesting exhibits, I especially enjoyed the pathology of dinosaurs. I feel the price was a little high for the number of exhibits.

We took our 5 year old son and he wasn't that interested, but I was very happy with the museum. It was the best fossil exhibit I have seen with hands on exhibits and ability to see real fossils being prepared. Use a coupon from the local area attraction guide.

We stopped here thinking the kids would have a great time. I would say it was just okay. Price to get in was a bit pricey (12 for adults and 8 for kids). I probably would have liked it more if the price for admission was cut in half. There was a guided tour but I didn't think the 7... More

If you are a die hard fan of dinosaurs, this place has very detailed exhibits. However, it is extremely small & very, very over priced. You will likely not spend even a hour here.

Our kids and grandkids loved this place. When we were there they had the Seven Falls Indian Dancers performing out front . EWe have seen Indian Dancers in New mexico & Arizona but this group is awesome.

My wife and I stopped in here as we are both interested in this sort of thing. It did seem a little pricy for what there was in there, but still enjoyed ourselves.
