We went mainly because it was close to where we were staying and it was inside (and it was cold and snowy outside!!) We had two children, ages 1 and 4, who are not really into dinosaurs so they mainly loved the gift shop and the coloring areas. I would have loved to have had more time to explore and... More

Thanks Kassieann! Our visitor guides are the best. They are very well versed in all of our exhibits, and get lots of kudos for being able to relate to anyone's questions, whether they are 4 or 100. We are very proud of them. More

They have a section where you can watch how they clean fossils! Very kid interactive! They encourage kids to touch! Oh and dont forget to get your pictures done with... More

We live a few blocks from this museum and visit quite often. If you happen to be able to visit often purchasing a membership is a great value. A couple visits and it is paid for. Because of this we don't feel any pressure to stay any specific time to "get our money's worth." I sometimes take all the kids... More

This place is really cool. Our little one is 6 and she is into dinosaurs and absolutely loved this place. This was worth the drive from Colorado Springs, which was a 25 minutes. The price with a military discount was $10.50 for adults and $6.00 for kids. We took the 1 hour tour which was very interesting; I did not... More

We are a family of dinosaur nuts! This museum was one of the best we have been to, and it's not even very big. Take one of the tours, they add a lot to the experience.

A nice change from other places to visit. Interesting and full of history. Take the tour to learn much more than you will on your own. It's not real long and you're not "trapped". Cool place.
