“Modest but special”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 1, 2013

Dinosaurs tracks seem to abound in the area but this site had skin impressions, which are exceedingly rare, as well as hundreds of tracks in a comfortable indoor exhibit.

“Interesting place to visit”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 29, 2013

Interesting, but 30 minutes is plenty of time to take in the museum. I think this is a place that would be better enjoyed by young children.

“Nice little place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 10, 2013

My 4yo son is dinosaur crazy, he really enjoyed the pterosaur exhibit and the hands on activities in the back room. He wasn't as keen on looking at all the footprints, he wanted to see more model dinosaurs but he still talked about afterwards so obviously enjoyed it. The gift shop is full of interesting things and the service was very friendly.

“good”

It is has so many display of dinosaur tracks, would be interesting for children. The admission fee is $6/adult. There is a 5-6 min video they show you before the tour.

“Sort of small.....”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2013

If there was no charge for this small museum it would be worth the cost. Its $6 for adults and $3 for children 4-11.
But they have not in my option developed it enough to make it worth the cost of admittance. Just alot of footprints mostly to be seen, which is somewhat interesting, and it does take up time if you want something to do. It also has an area outside for children to dig in the sand for footprints and fossels.And the small store is pretty good. It takes about 15-20 min or so to see all the exhibits.
It has restroom facilities, but no food available.
