We were down in Glen Rose for an overnight campout and went to the state park to see the tracks. We saw this place as it wasn't here the last time I was in Glen Rose. Looked interesting but didn't look like much. We stopped in anyway and there was tons of fun to be had. There was a museum... More

My family and I took a Tuesday to make the drive to Glen Rose and visit Dinosaur World. We basically had the whole place to ourselves. The staff was friendly and the walking tour was so much fun for the kiddos. They loved discovering a new dinosaur around every corner! Cute place for a family day trip!

As an adult I figured this would be kinda boring but was interested. Was surprised when told I got in free with Military ID! If you have kids they will love it, but be warned you go through a huge store FULL of toys! The museum was interesting to me, but probably not for children. I was impressed with the... More

I was very skeptical driving in finding out the park was a path of fake plaster dinosaurs. I wasn't sure it was worth the admission price. However, my kids absolutely loved it. The fossil dig was fun and they asked tons of questions about each dino. Overall, worth the stop! Be careful -- the gift shop is very attractive to... More

We took our vacation on what turned out to be the hottest week of the summer. Even in the 100F heat, the kids loved the giant dinosaurs lurking in the brush on the trails. They ran from one to the next, shrieking and stopping to identify the fiberglass beasts. Great photo ops and a very memorable visit. They loved the... More

We took the grand kids to this great attraction. There were so many realistic dinosaurs I couldn't even guess the amount. There were many events for the kids, some free and some for a fee. We could have spent an entire day there. It was fabulous!

My kids love this attraction. You walk along long paths through tons of life size dinosaurs. There is also a indoor museum with fossils. They have a fantastic gift shop with good prices. Always a winner.

My 9-year-old and I love dinosaurs so we were excited to visit this attraction. We were disappointed. There are life-sized dinosaur replicas all around the path with a plaque explaining the dinosaur. All you can do is look from behind the rope. There is a T-rex head the children can put their heads through as if they are being eaten... More

Touristy. The shop had plenty of stuff to buy and was well presented. We did not take the tour as I thought it was too expensive for me to go in. I would have let my kids go if they could have gone without me. Probably very educational. You would just have to go in and judge for yourself before... More

This is a really cool place to bring the kids. Especially if they like dinosaurs. My 2 yr old loves it here.
