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

The Dino museum in Kenosha is small, free, but worth a visit. The exhibit was expertly displayed in one exhibit hall and you can see the whole thing in five to ten minutes.

This place rates a minimum of 3 stars for the price / free!. Add another one for the kid's activity room downstairs and another for the nice assortment of bones and you're there. If you're a history geek, they have some super local history stories on the wall. The gift shop had enough assorted doo-dads for the cheap at heart... More

Awesome displays - an amazing collection in a deceptively small building. Lab in the lower level so you can watch curating (call ahead to see when). Definitely not your dry-and-dusty dinosaur exhibit!

Very nice layout and artful, realistic displays. The kids love it. The second floor balcony will stop your heart as the little ones run to the edge.
