Lots of interesting fossils. We loved the interactive sand table and the florescent rocks! Definitely stop if you are driving through North Dakota. Dino enthusiasts will love it.

Nice spot to begin your dinosaur trail viewing across the northern tier of the states. Great displays and information. Little gift shop. Very educational.
