“If you love dinosaurs...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 21, 2013

...or even if you don't...this is a place to stop! Admission is cheap and you can easily spend an hour in here.

I really love that they have exhibits that you can touch...actually touch dinosaur bones!....and even dinosaur poop!!! They also have the world's largest collection of bronzed dinosaur bones in the world...amazing!

Most of the relics are from the southwest, but there are still many from around the world. Loved learning about the dinosaurs here most of all.

Love this place! Would love to bring the grandkids here!!!!

What a nice surprise. This dinosaur museum had excellent displays and explanations of the displays. Good narration of the dinosaur habitat in New Mexico. Worth a visit.

“Get your share of Dinosaurs”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 30, 2012

This was a unexpected stop, but we enjoyed it. Took about 1 hour to see everything. All is well set up and described. They have a children's interactive area, plenty of places to sit, a nice gift shop and rest rooms. We enjoyed the visit alot and learned some things as well.
