Even though I brought my 2 boys, who are both pretty big dino fans, we were through this place in maybe 20-25 minutes at a very slow pace. I even made them finish the 'quiz' they hand out at the door (which just get you a discount to the 'museum' store).

The 'museum' (I keep putting that word in quotes for a reason) is just a bunch of dino mockups in an old warehouse. It would be ok if it were setup in your local shopping mall. Absolutely no atmosphere on anything.

The only nice part was that m boys initially wanted to do the monster asylum next door, but chickened out and we were able to go through this 'museum' instead.

My kids were looking forward to seeing the dinos but the museum isn't even open anymore. If you go to their website it fails to mention this. My husband and I kept driving around looking for it unable to find it. The GPS kept taking us to the aquarium instead. I finally went into the aquarium and asked them. They told me that the dinosuar place was hit by the tornado and will take one full year to be rebuilt. I'm wondering if the aquarium is actually located in the building that once housed the dinos. Its where the GPS kept taking us. A little fishy if you ask me.

It was a real disappointment. Wished we would have read the reviews on this one.
It had some things in there but you can walk the entire thing in about 20 mins.
The activity center that we thought we would go for was not much. The box of sand to dig for fossils was small and high off the ground. Not good for little ones who can not reach. There wre two computers to play games. It was good for us that no one else was there otherwise our kids would not have gotten to play with it. Bottomline it is over priced for what it was. It is only really worth $5-$3 for what it was. Go to the fish hatchery (free) and it is better and more to see and learn.
