This was a wonderful place for all ages. They had many rooms full of dinosaurs, fossil skeletons and a working fossil Laboratory. You could watch them making casts of bones they had found. One of the guides said they supply many other museums with these skeletons. Our 2 Grandson's loved seeing the huge Dinosaurs hanging from the ceilings and in... More

If you or your children are in to dinasours this is a great place to visit. The displays are very lifelike and the people working there are very knowledgeable. My son also went to a birthday party there once and he had a great time.

Very small museum. We were in and out with our grandsons in 20 minutes. Not worth the price of admission. I would not go back.

If you have kids or adults for that matter who are interested in paleontology this is the place for you. Fossils big and small to fill any interest and a staff that k ows everything about them. The gift shop is very reasonable price wise as well

You will regret not stopping here. Steven is an amazing tour guide because he actually works in the field. We are leaving smarter with a greater appreciation for paleontology.

My granddaughter, age 12, and I visit the Dinosaur Center at least once a year. When she was very young, she enjoyed the unique hands-on activities. Now that she's older, she and I enjoy the many exhibits and hold very interesting conversations while viewing them. Anyone of any age who enjoys learning about early life on Earth will enjoy their...

The displays are very well done. Also has an area for a video. There is a giant Sloth that came from the recent find at Snowmass, Colorado. There are a few hands-on sections for smaller children. Can touch dinosaur eggs. Open areas, so you don't feel crowded. Has life-like T-Rex for Photo Ops with children & a way to spot... More

Over the past few years we've been 3 times to the museum. The kids love it. It's great fun and educational. And the exhibits change enough in 6-12 months to go again. There are staff there to answer any questions or provide further explanation. And it's not just for kids. It's educational for adults too. There is also a nice... More
