I visited Dinosaur World with my grown children and grandchildren in January, 2015. We followed a winding path through the hillside where we were able to view quite a number of dinosaur exhibits in the form of large statues. They were not animated, just statues, and some were definitely in need of touch-ups because of weathering, but there were three... More

We were on our way to Dinosaur Valley state park and saw Dinosaur World on our way down to the entrance to the state park. It wasn't here years ago when I used to take my kids to the state park. Very fun and a great place to take your grandkids! It has an entrance fee that is not cheap... More

We all take the dinosaur era for granted and do not think about the difficulties these proud animals had to face. This site was an eye opener into this time period.

This is geared primarily to small children and not worth the pricey admission. I understand there is a discount for military.

This place was rad. We just went with three grownups and no kids and had a blast. Plus all the dinosaurs were out in their habitats even though I was cold (unlike stupid Fossil Rim Safari down the road). The animatronic dinosaurs inside the museum were super rad. They have a "realistic" giant robotic diorama of a Triceratops defending its... More

This is our second Dinosaur park. This one was more for little kids to actually see dinosaurs and not too much history and bones. These are fully constructed dinosaurs. The place is a little pricey and they do have military discount. Huge place to shop for dinosaur memorobilia. They have a sand pit where you can sift for fossils and... More

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
