On a family day outing we decided to stop by the dinosaur museum. It was more expensive then we thought it would be. But the kids really wanted to walk through. It was not as big as the outside makes it look and the walk through was pretty quick. The boys (9&8) was not as interested in it as we... More

This was okay, not very big, so not sure its worth the entrance fee. There are some good interactive things for kids. We saw everything in less than an hour.

I could gush about all the cool stuff in this place! You can touch dino poo, dust off fossils and walk under a sea of sea creatures! I'll totally be going again with my family. Supposedly the exhibits change so maybe things will be different the next time! The 4 star review is just because of the price, I thought... More

Didn't have big expectations for this little Roadside attraction. Very interesting information. Kiddos would probably have a blast!

We stopped here while on vacation because it was raining. The kids loved it. They had a hands on session while we were there and kids got to see and hold several cool things.

Our teenage son has always loved dinosaurs, so we spontaneously stopped here on the way to the Wolf Preserve (in Divide). It is really well done. Great displays, lots of dinosaur specimens, and a great little movie that describes how they collect and prepare the bones -- and share casts with museums all over the world. This place in little...

Our 11 year old granddaughter and we had an exceptional learning experience at the Dinosaur Resource Center. The museum area is filled with skeletal representations of a vast array of dinosaurs and sea creatures. The tour (at no additional cost other than a tip for the tour guide) was nothing short of excellent and our guide (a young man named... More

We stopped here just because we were tired of driving and we were so glad we did! What a find it was! The museum is well-organized and informative and the exhibits are beautiful. The fossils offered in the gift shop thrilled our daughter. Overall, just a wonderful way to spend an hour or so.
