My kids loved this museum. My son who is 4 years old, loved to see all the dinosaurs. It is free and very close to Kenosha public museum and civil war museum.

It was cute. I wouldn't make it the only stop of the day but it was clean, cute and free. I had teenagers so they were not impressed but I enjoyed it and I'm sure younger kids would have too.

We went when all of the Dino people were on a site excavation. The kids had a good time and it was free. Would be better when they palentologists were in residence.

Small inside, but packed with dinosaurs! You can't beat free admission either. Located inside a vintage post office building with great historical charm. We spent about 30 minutes looking at the displays and small gift shop. Great for a quick stop while in the Kenosha area. Pair it up with a trip to the Public museum downtown and a stop... More

It contains one hall with several skeletons of dinosaurs. Since my little son is crazy about them we had to visit. Admission is free (donation if you wish) You can take some cool pictures and read brief notes about each displayed skeleton. Whole visit wont take more than half hour.

Nice place to take the grandchildren - they really enjoyed it! Doesn't take a long time so they don't loose interest.

Its beautiful city and amazing Museum... Good for kids as it is dedicated to the exploration and explication of the relationship between modern birds and ancient carnivorous biped dinosaurs, the theropods, which include Carnotaurus, Tyrannosaurus rex, and Velociraptor. this place has small gift shop as well.. its free admission and free parking

Other reviewers have said that this is a small place, and I agree, but I think your experience depends on how you approach it. My daughters and I had a great time at this place, because we didn't expect too much and we made our own fun.

Found this place while driving through Kenosha and had to stop. It's a small place, but the exhibit is very well done and informative. The docent was very knowledgeable and friendly. The full skeletons are replicas, but they have some authentic fossils as well. It's a quick stop, but definitely worthwhile, especially if you have a dinosaur fan in the... More
