The kids loved this place. Make sure they are on the younger side and plan to spend about three hours of walking.

My 69 year old mother, 8 year old daughter and I went on one of the hottest days this summer. I was worried my companions wouldn't be able to enjoy themselves because of the over 100° temp. But the trail runs through a densely wooded are and the shade made it tolerable. We were only there for 2 hours and... More

For the most part, it was better than we expected. The way they had the dinosaurs set up was very "realistic". Not sure about some of the colors they chose....but....The path was shady and very pleasant to walk. LOVED the museum. We walked thru and read everything. Great displays. Had some nice hands on things for younger kids. Would recommend,... More

This would have been great for a family with younger children. My children are a little older (11 and 15) and still had a good time, but could have been better. All in all, a good stop to stretch your legs and rest if you're on the road.

We visited Dinosaur World today and my two year old loved it. However from the website, I thought it would be more interactive. The dinosaurs are along a walking trail, but they are roped off where you couldn't touch them. But she did love walking though. Since it is self guided, I wish there had been audio sounds around the... More

Brought our grandchildren ages 9 and 10. We had a good time. It might have been a bit young for them but they enjoyed it none the less.

It was ok, kids liked it. Good place to stop if your traveling on the interstate and let the kids run around. I took three kids, littlest one wasn't fond of the walk to the big T-rex but was happy to see it.

People naturally associate cave's with dinosaurs. This is a fun place for kids and not too expensive. Our extended family has a reunion here every year and there's are always groups and individual families taking their kids to Dinosaur World. The kids love it, and can come away with a few dinosaur souvenirs that helps to cement a fun memory.

We came when my oldest grand baby was 2, and now she's 8! Had a good time! Wished they moved or something. It's nice for the kids, they dig for stuff then mine for gems! Great place for pictures!!

We took two of our three kids (the oldest did not go), ages 8 and 5. They enjoyed walking through the paved, shaded trails and learning about the different types of Dinosaurs. We watched most of the indoor movie and flew through the museum. The kids loved the fossil dig but their favorite part *hands down* was the gem mining.... More
