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

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

It was fun with small children, ages 4 and 6, to "excavate the dinosaurs" in the basement. The first floor was also very impressive for the children and showed them how large the dinosaurs were.

This is a free museum, but there wasn't a lot to see and do. The kids did enjoy seeing the dinosaurs inside and outside.

Though it's just one hall, the way they displayed the Dinosaurs utilizing the whole space was perfect.

My kids loved the dinosaur museum (6,7,8), it is very small (just one big room really), but they have a downstairs lab and special event area - make sure to check the hours the downstairs in open, because you will definitely want to check it out. Admission is free, with a donation bucket right as you enter. Definitely worth a... More

This museum is a very small museum, but it's free, so you can't beat that! There is lots and lots of skeletons of dinosaurs with information about them. I'd say that it would probably take about fifteen minutes to get through the museum.

Highly recommended family educational experience. Visited summer 2006. Normally, paleontology is not my 'cup-o'-tea', so to speak, but my wife and I have made some very interesting discoveries in the Kettle Moraine district of Wisconsin that have peaked our curiosity and interest. This, coupled with viewing relics of and visiting the copper mines of Upper Peninsular Michigan, led to our... More
