Went with my 8 year old on a day trip. Nice little display up front of mastodon teeth, bones and other artifacts. Everything is behind glass in little cases. Gift shop is small but has a nice selection of books, toys and clothing and drinks and snacks. Our day there was over 100 degrees. There are replicas of ancient animals out back. The trail to the Bison was not very long and well shaded. Go early to see them. They tend to go to the back in the heat of the day. They have programs through the park and that day was tomahawk throwing but your child had to be 10 to participate. A little disappointing for my son. Maybe have another activity for those that can't participate. Took us about 2 hours to tour the park with the bison. Lady at the gift shop told us to eat at Trixie's Marine on our way to Rabbit Hash, KY. Good, not fancy food.
