There's plenty to do here and it's easy to spend several hours while exploring all it has to offer. The animated museum is not large, but it's very well done.

I thought this place would be something of a sham but no!! There must have been 50 or so life-size dinos!! All were stages very nicely throughout a 1/2 mil stroll through the facility and included names and information on each one. The toys in the shop were very reasonable.

We visited with our two kids, ages 6 and 3 and my in-laws and we all had a great time. The outdoor trail has shady spots and benches throughout. There were some fun opportunities where the kids could climb into a dinosaur mouth and dinosaur egg - made for fun photos. Even the trash cans here are fun. They have... More

Great place for kids especially owe that love dinosaurs. Most of the exhibits are outside so in the summer it's good to go early when it opens. Definitely pay the extra to do the mining. We just bought it for the kids and helped them. Nice play area and picnic tables to bring your own picnic. We live in Glen... More

We spent a solid two hours here and the only reason we didn't stay longer was the rain. But my boys and I powered through it and saw all the dinos on the walking path, which was so much fun, dug for fossils, collected gemstones, screamed in fear and delight at the animatronic dinosaurs and spent way too much money...

Had fun, would not want it to be any longer just too hot... Didn't see any animatronics they had advertised... That was kind of disappointing..... Overall kind of expensive for an hour walk but if you have not seen it already it's something to check out.

My only suggestion is to not go during the middle of a hot summer day. Other than that, really well done and entire family enjoyed the half mile walk to find dinosaur statues and the indoor museum.

Neat place to go visit, but go early in the day! Their museum is very cool with fossils and animated dinosaurs my girls loved!
