“Great place for kids.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 20, 2013

This stop along I65 is a great place for families of all ages, anytime of the year. It is always clean, the staff is friendly, and generous military / senior discounts. Plus, you can bring your dog!

“Fun for Dinosaur lovers”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 31, 2012

Our 8 year old was in heaven. He carefully read every description and we took photos with almost every dinosaur. It is an easy walk for the whole family. We have been to other dinosaur exhibits and this compared nicely. Our son was happy and therefore we were.

“Worth our sons excitement!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 21, 2012 via mobile

We only made it for an hour at the end of the day on thanksgiving eve but had promised dinosaurs on our trip South for the holiday. Our 8 year old daughter wasnt overly impressed though she enjoyed the nice walking trail after 8 hours of driving. But our 4 year old son was in heaven as he ran from dinosaur to dinosaur. Even though they had already closed the fossil dig, they opened it for our kids since we got such a short time on the trail. That was very nice. Huge gift shop with great dinosaur and fossil finds. A must for families who have a dinosaur lover!

“What a place for kids.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 19, 2012

We took our (2) grandsons who are 2.5 years of age. They were so excited even before we could get out of the car. This place is at least 2 hours for constant fun for the kids and grandparents. They have a fossil dig for the children and the person who explains to them what they are doing is great with the kids. The gift shop has anything to do with Dinosaurs that a kid could want. Plan on spending some cash here.

“Good visit with toddler. Staff not that accommodating.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 10, 2012 via mobile

We had a great time with our child. When we got there nobody told us the "fossil dig" had a specific time and no one also told us (although apparentely its on a sign at check in ) that unless you pay for your free toddler that they don't get to participate in the fossil dig. So we walk up to the dig site as I suppose they ha just finished. The guy working said oh we just finished up so we said okay no worries. He then says well come and dig so we said great. Our 2 year old obviously had not idea what he was supposed to do and the attendant didn't offer any help, just said oh that's okay maybe next time and closed shop. He did say when u leave stop by the counter & tell them he didn't dig and they will give him a free fossil. Fair enough. Well when we leave the lady starts this big deal about how we don't get a fossil bc we didn't pay for him and blah blah blah but we can purchase the fossils...I'm like wow fossils must be expensive these days. Haha. It was quite humorous how tight this place is. We didn't really care about the fossil anyways but wow.
