Nice little place for kids to play for an hour. Nothing more, nothing less. Don't expect much. For little kids under 10 for sure. The Dino dig in basement on weekends seems to be the biggest hit for kids. Sometimes kids can help clean real dino bones :)

Again, this museum is a donation only deal so it was ok. One small room with some interesting things, but we were done in 15 minutes. There are coloring activities and the current paleontology discoveries downstairs, but the audio presentation wasn't working so we glanced at what was there and left. The Field Museum definitely has spoiled us!

Walked in to a huge dinosaur display which looked amazing come to find out that is all there is just the entrance no other displays. taxpayer money being wasted when this could be combined with their bigger museum a few blocks away. Oh but you can go down in the open space downstairs and color. my kids were done after... More

We had mixed ages in our group of 5 from young to older - the museum is very tiny, but can be very interesting if you actually read the information about the dinosaurs. The kids and kids at heart had fun coloring in the children's area downstairs. You could be in and out of this museum in 30 minutes.

Great for little ones with small attention spans. Enough for them to be and stay interested then its time to go. I loved the descriptions of the dinos and the fossil dig downstairs.

It is a two room "museum" and I use the term lightly!!! They ask for a donation at the beginning. I am assuming because they know that no one would give them a donation at the end!! If you need to waste time or want to be disappointed go for it, otherwise, skip it!!

I took my kids here last week. We parked and walked up the stairs (3 minutes) we entered the big room and walked clockwise around looking at the dinosaur's. When the square was done, we were too. It took about 10-15 minutes. It's small and if you need to kill about 15-20 minutes this is your place...just don't plan on... More
