This is an excellent place to go when you don't have a lot of time, or have kids with a short attention span. It won't take long at all to see the displays and the kids can go downstairs afterwards and color or read dinasaur...More

I started here and took the .25 cent trolley to the other museums. I think I spent maybe 5 bucks total and enjoyed the three museums all on the Trolley route. Great place for a cheap date.

This is a very small museum, though very nicely done. We took our nephews here (ages 8 and 5) and it held their interest for about 20-30 minutes so I'm glad it was free. Worth a visit if you are into dinosaurs though!

I was expecting a little bigger but it was still small and quaint. It is 1 medium sized room with about 20 dinosaur skeletons on display and information posted about each one. There are some wall displays too. The basement had some organized activities but...More

I believe so. As long as you have explained that dinosaurs can be big and intimidating (they have a T-Rex and Allosaurus on display).

There is no admission price, as it is a free museum. They do have donation boxes though if you want to make a donation.
