This is one of the best museums we've visited lately. It's fun, educational, interactive and great for all ages to learn more about dinosaurs and other creatures that lived millions of years ago. We were headed to Dinosaur National Monument and someone suggested we first stop here...we're very glad we did. It's wonderful, including the gift shop with many unique... More

Hands-on exhibits, video presentations, murals,... More

This place was the best money I spent in the area. My son is a dinosaur fanatic. The many exhibits so overwhelmed him with excitement, he begged to go back through the exhibit to see it all again. Despite how tired he was after our three hour visit he still wanted to stay and play. His favorite part was the... More

This is a fun and interesting museum. There are lots of hands on exhibits, that are fun and educational, for both old and young. I have been here with my young kids, my teen kids, and my mom and married kids. Everyone was having ingredients a good time.

A great deal of info presented in a very concise manner. Beautiful murals and full size models, and the bone and fossil collection is awesome. Will really make you think how much we still do not know! Came with three kids from 3 to 13, all left very happy.

Compact but fascinating. The outside dinosaur exhibition is good for kids but can be very hot in the afternoon. Inside, there are some great interactive displays with fossils and ancient ecosystems as well as some interesting cultural artifacts. Good value for $7 an adult.

I love everything dinosaurs so while on a sister's trip we all went to check out the museum and I'm glad we did. Tons of awesome information and artifacts to look at - knowledge without feeling like you are back in school. Recommend for adults and kids alike.
