Took our 2 girls ages 7 & 9 for an afternoon. The dinosaur museum had a few cool exhibits, but my youngest thought it was the gift shop, and wanted to know when she was going to see the actual museum ;) The kids enjoyed feeding the calf and playing with the new kittens (we witnessed no abuse, the animals...

This place didn't look wonderful from the road, but we checked it out anyway. When I saw the cost of admission (almost $10 each) I almost walked out, but I'm glad I didn't. We met Bart, who is very knowledgeable and passionate about sharing his love of dinosaurs with others. He gave us a tour of the museum and then... More

This place was great in our opinion. The dinosaur museum isn't the biggest but still has a great display with plenty of information. There is some reading involved but any good parent could make that interactive. As far as we were concerned, the petting zoo while not the biggest had enough animals to keep a kid busy. And yes, you... More

This is one of the worst 'tourist attractions' I have ever been to for many years. The museum is so limited and poorly set up - my grandson who is crazy about dinosaurs, and pretty knowledgeable, was not in the least attracted to the displays. The petting zoo should be shut down - some of the animals were without water... More

The museum was pretty cool, the huge dinosaurs were the best in my opinion. The kittens in the petting farm were so cute! The mom was very nice too and didn't mind that we spent quite a while playing with her kittens. I had a hard time pulling away the kids! We were even allowed to go in the pen... More

Don't waste your money on this one. The dinosaur part is Ok but the petting zoo is both sad and cruel. There are a couple of pigs, some chickens in filthy pens and then there's the disgusting petting zoo. One very sad calf with a goat in a tiny circular pen with no shade or water and another small pen... More

Brought our Toddler - and she could have spent the full day. Museum was fine for what it is. The playground was very fun and the petting zoo was the greatest. Had a guided tour through and was able to bottle feed a calf. Well worth the 10 to get in. We will be back.

Absolutely the worst tourist attraction in Cavendish. We paid $32.00 for outdated displays, and a few old movie dinosaur replicas. NO interactive display/ interpretation for children of any age, NO interpreter/educator, toys were approx. 20 year old broken plastic fisher price items unrelated to dinosaurs or animals. Why were they there?? The grounds were in disrepair or partially closed, and... More

Had fun petting all the animals! Was thrilled to bottle feed the calf. :). The goats were very friendly. The museum had a lot of interesting facts about dinosaurs. I held an actual dinosaur egg!!! Well worth the trip there. Price was reasonable, only $10 for an hour of fun.
