After seeing this on CNBC we had to check it out for ourselves. This was done in the 1950s it has stood the test of time. All the creatures are in great shape and you are allowed to dig a little for fossils, great for...More

It's really an attraction that you go because you went to it when you were a kid. And it did one thing: made me memorize what the word "petrified" means. The creatures aren't fossils. They are made of concrete. Honest! Only reason to go is...More

Don't waste your time. This place is so antiqued. I remember it as a child, the exhibits haven't changed in 40 years

I heard about this place on CNBC so we had to try it. It really is an eye opener to see all these fossils and dinosaurs in a display on the grounds. This is located a few miles out of town and you can not...More

It was rainy. We were grumpy. The children needed to go somewhere that engaged them but did not tire them out. Bingo! Sweet little attraction that has been around since my husband was a child. Enough fascinating "stuff" to keep my little scientist happy, and...More

A good place for younger kids because there are large, colorful, talking dinosaurs that intrigued the little ones. The older boys thought it was OK but it wasn't their favorite activity.
