Wonderful place to visit, but NOT when it is hot! So many models of dinos to see and the gift shop and playground were nice too. We brought our lunch and ate at the picnic tables. Good place to go and take children.

Fun place for smaller children. A little on the pricey side for just statues. The day we went it was very hot which made the walk around outside hard to handle. Go in the cooler months!

Our kids enjoyed the gem excavation a lot, worth the extra price. They also got to keep 3 “fossils” from the dinosaur dig. The Dinosaur animatronics were fun. The museum, Bathrooms, and Gift Shop are air conditioned. The bathrooms were quite clean and had many...More

2 to 3 hours. Check the fossil dig times (4 or 5 times a day as I recall) and you may want to schedule accordingly.
