We stopped with our 4 year old daughter, who loved digging for dinosaur "bones" in the sandbox. The preserved tracks are impressive, and the short movie is helpful. The staff members are experts and know how to explain the findings. Not too big - 45 minutes to 2 hours is enough to enjoy the place. And nice to find a... More

I am interested in paleontology and we were passing through so decided to stop. Don't expect much. Interesting to see the tracks but really in need of more. The video at the beginning is a cartoon at first and only for kids followed by a segment on how the tracks were created and found. Our party of 4 looked at... More

This is really cool place, if you have children. Its not that exciting for an adult not interested in Pre-Historic Animals. Dino Bones are cool and they have activities to keep the kids entertained.

If you have big Dino fans, it's interesting to see the Dino footprints, but it is only a few and touching us mostly off limits. We've been to Glen Rose, TX were you can see them unremoved and touch them. Way cooler. The price is a bit high for what you get to see and do. An OK diversion at... More

This was a very interesting visit. We took the grandkids and the only thing that I can say is the first part that when they watch a movie was a little long for little ones. They enjoyed watching people clean the specimans.

We weren't impressed. Not with the cost to walk a cement sidewalk in 5 minutes and see the same thing again and again. My kids were bored and hated it and they love anything dinosaur. We won't do it again.

I wasn't sure what to expect but was very surprised at the amount of real dinosaur tracks collected only since 2005. Amazing, must see. The facility is indoors, air conditioned and easy walk through. It should take about an hour or more. Guides were there to explain the details and were very helpfull. The actual field of stone with footprints... More

This is a cool place to check out once. You only need an hour or so to walk around. The preservation of the rocks is amazing and they have people constantly working on additional pieces.

The building is built on top of sea bed that was unearthed by Dr Johnson who was clearing the land to sell. When he found foot prints. Its was interesting learning about it all, and seeing the dig site. There was... More
