More than a museum, there are many unique and one of a kind items for sale. Our grandson had a great time looking at all the artifacts and neat toys. They also have some very unique jewelry that's worth checking out. It made for a nice afternoon family outing.

Looking for something different to do we found the Dinosaur Store. Everything there was super neat and nice to look at, but everything was SUPER expensive and made you afraid to touch anything. Spent only about 10 minutes there and didn't buy anything, was not in our price range.

They have some very cool fossils and mineral specimens to see and buy if you like that stuff. I do like it so it was worth the visit just to look if nothing else. Kids will love it!

The kids absolutely loved this museum. There were activities they could participate in and animals to see . They also had an artifact section with ancient history and a really nice suvenire shop. The only down fall was some of the kids rides in the fun centre were broken and the sifting activity was like 2 seconds long and these... More

This was a fun place to visit. My son was able to check out all the dinosaur bones, play games, watch a movie and see the live animals. I was glad that we stumbled onto this place and decided to check it out!

Customer service was great! Kids ages 3, 5, 7, and 8 had lots of fun. Bored after 40min which is a lot to say for the price.

We took our grandchildren of 2 and 4 to this combination game arcade, animal exhibits, and retail store. Our 2 year old loved spinning on the old-time carnival self spinning contraption. Our 4 year old loved the unlimited "Hyrdro Thunder" video game. He must have played at least 25 times. There are several games/exhibits which are unlimited use after you... More

They have a lot of neat things to check out but the museum wasn't open when we were there. Good for natural history buffs maybe?
