The main attraction was the dinosaur tracks. The volunteer was very nice. Since we were the only people there at the time, we got a private tour with her. The cost was reasonable for maintaining the museum and preserve the tracks. Great place for the kids.

They were dinosaur tracks from many long years ago, even before the earth was here according to some. Now you can see these tracks for yourself. Recently metal shade structures were installed making summer on a... More

Under a large steel pole-barn are at least 60 dinosaur footprints that reveal the path of these giants. Great field trip!! It is a... More

Enjoyed strolling outside and looking at the dino tracks. Its nice that they covered them for preservation. The structure was tastefully done and the entire outside area looks very professionally landscaped. Inside are 2 rooms with local history and prehistoric displays. Worth a stop.

We arrived on Saturday, June 9, with lots of anticipation of what we'd find. After paying $20 for the five of us, we headed out to see the dino tracks. Located under a large, covered pavilion, we were disappointed that we weren't given access to view the tracks up close. In fact, the walkway keeps you pretty far from the... More
