We were impressed by the information given along with the displays at this new museum at the unexpected excavation site. People with children who are fascinated with dinosaurs will love this interesting site that is ongoing. While we were visiting the comprehensive displays, enthusiastic volunteers were busy at work with microscopes and also still digging and examining excavation pieces.

There was a lot of ancient things to see in one place. It is a way away from the city, but I think kids who have studied dinosaurs would really like it.

I took my family to the Dinosaur Discovery site. I have to admit that it's pretty cool seeing the tracks of the dinosaurs so well preserved. However, I only noticed three different species' tracks and slab after slab of the same thing. While they had other bones there, most of those were replicas. Definitely a cool thing to see, but...

This is not only a museum preserving artifacts from the Age of Dinosaurs but also a working artifact site. You can watch archeologists restore dinosaur bones while you are walking in the steps of these dinosaurs.

I never saw dinosaur tracks before. This was a very interesting site. It's not so big that it takes all day to get through it all and read all the plaques. You can spend an hour or two there and see it all. Really fascinating stuff and a great story about how it was all discovered and preserved.

That was the best part. It's a very small museum but great finding. A/C throughout so it's nice to get away from the summer heat. The volunteers were helpful and enthusiastic to share their knowledge with us.

The sign from the 15 says "dinosaur tracks". Being only 2.1 miles off the interstate piqued our interest. It's a nice little museum with awesome dinosaur prints on display. Lots of information signs and volunteer helpers. We stayed about 45 minutes. Enough time to see everything and take pictures. If you're in to dinosaurs at all, this is a must... More

There is not a lot to see here. But what they have is interesting. My 10 year old who is into dinosaurs loved it. If you go on the weekend, you can go back in the lab with the paleontologist and see what they are working on. Entrance fee is $6 for adults $3 for kids. I don't think this... More

This was way boring and allot of money to see a warehouse full of giant rocks that could or could not have been tracks from dinosaurs. Unless you are really really into Dino stuff this is boring and not worth a penny.
