We were staying in Woodland Park, so this was a very convenient attraction to visit. My youngest children, 11-year-old twins, were excited to visit the resource center. I was happy to learn that this was an actual museum with real dinosaur fossils and not a simple roadside attraction. Having been to larger museums, such as the Field Museum in Chicago, I did think this museum was rather small. If we had not caught one of the tours, I probably would have been disappointed by the size of the museum in comparison to how much it cost for our family of six to get in.The tour guide, however, was very interesting and made the experience far more enjoyable than it would have been to just walk through the resource center on our own. It was also interesting to see the workers as they prepared bones and casts. They take a picture of you when you first walk in and I found the price to be quite reasonable ($5 for one or $8 for two pictures). We bought ours because it was quite amusing!
In all, this is a worthwhile experience if you are in the area, particularly if you get one of the tours. It would not, however, be worth driving a great distance to see.
