This museum and experience are wonderful for kids and adults. It is easily accessible. Take the Alameda Exit off C470 between I-70 and Morrison. You can take the bus tour and the guide will explain everything. If you walk up on your own, it is a nice little hike but you will not learn as much.
They have wonderful programs for school field trips, Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts as well as Summer camps. Birthday parties are a lot of fun and very affordable. I am actually a volunteer here and love the staff and people.

It was a bit difficult to find, but once there, it was wonderful. The guides were knowledgeable and very helpful. They had no problems with 1 person taking a bus tour (it was just too cold for the self-guided tour) and were very helpful with directions to other locations. The museum was interactive and a lot of fun. The gift shop was really well stocked.

Get the tour so you know what you're looking at. Tour is cheap and worth it. Great fun for the whole family.

At a price of $5, you can't go wrong taking the little tour out of this attraction. The mini bus doesn't take you far, but our guide was knowledgeable and made the short half hour tour lively and informative. You can hike up on your own to look at the dino footprints, but you won't learn as much if you venture on your own.

Don't miss the gift shop. There is a nice selection at very reasonable prices. I bought a large hunk of Rose Quartz (about eight inches tall) for $45. Unheard of! We also bought a couple of dino teeth reproductions (several inches in length) for only $9 each.

This is such a treasure to have in the area. Where else would you be able to look closely at so many dinosaur tracks in their original environment?
