Lovely little museum. Very small but a lot to see and do, a lot of love has clearly gone in to it. Perfect for little dinosaur fans!

Visited with my family after a visit to the Deep ,good location (when all the roadworks have been done) 5 mins walk from the deep and hull centre ,cheap to get in,lots of interactive bits and pieces for kids and those that refuse to grow up.Would benefit from having more soft/plush dinosaur toys available in the shop for young children.

From the outside this looks like like an abandoned 90's lazer quest. Inside however, it's a charming, well put together museum made by people that have clearly spent a lot of time and love into it. Adults were £3, children were £1.50, small ones free. All of mine (18m-15y) had a good time here for just under 2 hrs. Lots... More

Thank you for your great review. The area around Dinostar is being regenerated so in the next 12 months the “abandoned” appearance of the street will gradually disappear! More

Very small but held 3 year olds attention and was perfect as hubby was waiting for us outside with the dogs. Some great models and thoughtful games for the children to play. Particularly the brushing the sand off the bones and small world dinosaur play. Good value for money.

despite the difficulty of getting there due to roads closed for an upcoming music festival, it was worth the trek and lots to do for a couple of hours for kids. Obviously proprietors are keen on dinosaurs and it's educational , fun and very good value for a school hols half day focus point.Short walk from marina or princess quay... More

Thank you for your review. Festivals do cause some minor disruption to access by car but they are also an exciting time. You might like to consider visiting Hull during the Freedom Festival in September. More

Really nice little museum. Totally unexpected from looking at the building from outside. Lots of nice little exhibits, and some quite large. You could really easily spend half a day or more here with a young child. Lots to do upstairs, definitely recommend this place.

Many thanks for your comments. You are right in saying that our museum is designed to be “child friendly” – hands-on and interactive. I hope that you will visit us again when you are next in Hull. 2017 will be a big year for our city when we are the UK City of Culture. More

Interesting dinosaurs experience, will definitely visit again. Great place for a family visit. It was a bit hard to find as that was the first time we travelled to Hull and the roads were fixing etc. But it was great.
