What a great museum and all in a tin shed, we loved it especially the kids. We were amazed at the amount of displays available, couldn't recommend it more, well worth the visit and the cost.

Defiantly would tell anyone to come here, it's very interesting and the dinosaurs were awesome! The gift shop was expensive but that's normal, and the exhibits were full of information, I was very pleased with the service, my kids loved the museum!

“Disappointed.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 10, 2013 via mobile

The center has a lot of great fossils and it's interesting to watch the experts work in the lab. However, it is quite small and doesn't take long enough to explore to make it worth the admission price. There is one small play area that my family really enjoyed, but the center is geared towards adults, not children. The biggest turn off for me is the lack of customer service. The employees act as if they don't want any visitors to even be in the building. They were very unfriendly. Also, the prices in the gift shop are absolutely outrageous.

The real fossils were amazing. I also enjoyed how the exhibits were laid out showing the earth's development.
