My 10 year old and I came from Dallas for a little adventure, and we found it at Dinosaur World! The realistic displays of a wide variety of dinosaurs was very interesting, and we appreciated the information presented in front of each display. The park was just the right size, especially for walking in the heat of the day, and... More

What a fantastic place! We visited on Father's Day,so my husband got in for free. The tickets for the kids and grown ups alike were very affordable.We were immediately greeted by a very friendly staff upon arrival. We got a quick info on what to do, what time are different activities like digging for fossils, as well as visiting hours... More

We visited Dinosaur World a couple of days ago, and it was one of the highlights of our trip to Glen Rose. Unfortunately, due to the amount of rainfall we have had lately, we could not see the actual dinosaur tracks at the state park. We had planned to go to Dinosaur World all along, so we went there first.... More

It was very well designed and set up. Dinosaurs were put in realistic settings and were very well made.

If you like tourist traps, then, may I suggest you come here. If you could think of 100 other things to do with your $80 for 4 people, then do any of the other 100 things. We spent about an hour. Even my dinosaur addict wasn't that excited by it.

The State Park was closed for track viewing today due to high water in the river, so we were very glad that we went to Dinosaur World. There are many life-size replicas of dinosaurs that we have heard of and lots that we had never heard of. We learned a lot as each was well-described. There is a good museum... More

We enjoyed our visit to Dinosaur World. Kids will enjoy the walk and seeing large replicas of the various dinosaurs, and if you take the time to read the descriptions, you learn a lot about different dinosaurs and their world. The museum has some interesting fossils, tracks, teeth, bones, and claws. It also has several animatronic dinosaurs to move and... More

This is a great place to take the kids. They have a circular walk with dinosaur replicas and a pond where you can feed the koi (with food purchased when you first arrive). They have a fun playground with lots of picnic tables, and are building additional play area to be finished in the next month or so. There is... More

This is a good place to visit with children. My 7 and 9 years old daughters had a great time even though it rained for a while. It took us 2.5 hours to visit everything they have to offer without rushing it. We bought the mining activities for kids and we all enjoyed it. We found discount coupons for adult... More
