at first we thought it was a cheesy pit stop, but the kids had a blast. They have kept this tradition up for years. Our kids had a fun time discovering and learning about dinosaurs they had not seen before. The life size feel of some of them helped put their massiveness into perspective.

I have to start off by saying there's nothing better than free admission for military! Decent price for what you get. The kids were entertained for a few hours and it was interesting for the adults to read about the dinosaurs along the path. Would definitely visit again.

At first it looked a little cheesy, but it was fun, and informative. Loved how some of the dinosaurs looked like they were spying on the others. The movie was informative, and even though the museum part was small, it was nice to view. Huge variety of items at the gift shop. The kids loved it.

What an excellent stop on our way down to Nashville from Cleveland. The dinosaurs were fun to look at and there were plenty of great photo opportunities. We paid for the whole experience and it was worth it for the kids, they loved the mining. The park was really clean and well maintained. Take the time to visit, you will... More

My wife and I took our 5 year old son here in Mid August and had a great time. Not too big and not too small and with just the right amount to do, it was a great time had by all. It's got a small museum with some neat facts but the walking trail is by far the main... More

Took a 3 year old and 4 adults. The adults had just as much fun as the child. Would definitely recommend. Easy stroll, impressed with the displays, kept the attention of the toddler and offered age appropriate activities.

Totally worth stopping and checking out. Be sure and take a cooler that is easily carried to keep everyone hydrated when walking and seeing the dinos on the trail. Kids had a blast! We bought a pay dirt bag for the kids to mine and the gems where plentiful and some pretty large. The gift shop offers some cool pieces... More

The gift shop is largr. The employees were friendly. We only bought the regular tickets. The walk was ok. It was a little cheesy, but my toddler enjoyed running around. It's a nice and affordable place to stop. We enjoyed it as a way to break up our travel from Nashville to Louisville.

We took our 12 year old daughter who wants to be a paleontologist when she grows up. She did enjoy it, but wished there was more to do for older kids. She did do the fossil dig and the person running it was super nice and very knowledgeable. Over the entire place was super clean, the museum was interesting and... More
