Having been to the rundown Dinosaur Land in Virginia, we were not too sure going into this place. Especially when we walked in and saw the prices. BUT, what a great place! It is well-kept, clean, and the staff is great. The dinosaurs are in great shape, and the place also has a small museum, cave theater, mining sleuth, playground,... More

If you like dinosaurs, it's worth the visit. They really are life-sized, and posed in great setups with multiple dinosaurs per exhibit. They are plaster and do not move, but if you are at all interested in dinosaurs or have kids that are, it's the place to go. A few extra things for the kids to do as well, at... More

We stopped at Dinosaur World during a day-long stay in Cave City, as part of a very long cross-country trip involving three children under the age of 10. This could have been a roadside vegetable stand and the kids would have been excited merely because they were out of the car. *LOL* I tell you this because it *may* have... More

Dinosaur World is not Disney World, but let's face it, nothing is. For an adult, it's totally lame. However you don't go to Dinosaur World for yourselves, you go for your kids, and my 6 year old loved it. The park is well maintained and the staff is ultra friendly and incredibly knowledgeable about dinosaurs. At the fossil dig kids... More

Not bad on the price. Walk around the outside trail and look at the fiberglass dinosaur. Plaques give you the info on them. Best part is the Fossil Dig and the gold mine thing. In the Fossil Dig the kids get a little class on paleontology while they dig for fossils and they get to keep what they find. My... More

A pretty good place to visit if you enjoy giant fibreglass dinosaurs (which I do, a lot). Not much in the way of paleontological information, and it could hardly be called an educational experience - it is heavily geared towards selling souvenirs. On the other hand, excellent for dramatic recreations of scenes from Jurassic Park (and photographs).

It was a great experience to see all the dinosaur replicas. I went during the week so it was not crowded at all. My children enjoyed everything about dinosaur world and I am sure we will come again

First off I will say me and my wife have been waiting and anticipating taking our grandson to "Dinosaur World" in Cave City, KY for a while. We are actually locals and only live around one hour from here. Our grandson just turned 5 in July. He has had us watch all the "Jurrasic Park" movies with him over and... More
