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.

Free is always good, so the price here was right. The single room is pretty cool, but there is not much to extend the visit. We participated in the children's activity where they were able to uncover fossils. That extended the trip to 35 mins.

Small but free. My youngest son who's 3 loved it, the older 5 kids in our group weren't impressed. Nice quick stop if you need to fill 15-30 minutes of time.

Outside of building is impressive. Lots of great old architecture. Entrance area has a small gift shop, some dinosaur bones for viewing. Main area is limited to one room with several dinosaurs on display (a few interactive display boards with dinosaur sound effects) On the lower level (when open) provides an area to view workers digging through fossil materials.

The museum was nice, but small. A good day trip from Chicago, but not a place to set for a destination.

First trip here. The lower level was closed due to some repairs & painting, so we could only see the main floor. A large tour group of kids came in before & after us, which would had made for cramped conditions in this small building, but we lucked out. You can't beat free

What kid doesn't love dinosaurs? Adults will enjoy this place, too. While not large, the main gallery is very well done and makes these ancient creatures come to life.

If you are in the area, it is worth a short stop for the visuals and the dioramas. The museum is free entrance, and you should plan about 30/60 minutes. The kids would be thrilled.
