“One big waste of time, however, it will cost you $3 to waste your time.”
Reviewed November 18, 2012

The words 'fossil' and 'science' do not belong in the center's title as there are very little fossils and absolutely NO science. If you believe the earth is 6,000 yrs old (num obtained by adding up the ages of all people in the bible, lol) and humans walked along side dinosaurs than this is your place. Also, the facility itself is the size of the ave home with maybe 5 fossils and the 1 acre of grounds is poorly maintained, for example; there is a sliding board approximately 20 ft high that looks to be built by a child, extremely unsafe and in poor condition. Do not waste $3 and valuable time!

“WONDERFUL FAMILY TIME”
Reviewed November 16, 2012

We found the fossils very interesting, the kids spent a lot of time looking, touching, and even handling some of them. It was very educational. I packed a picnic lunch, which we ate in the picnic area. The children then spent several hours, riding the zip line, playing putt putt, and playing on the many other play ground equipment. A wonderful day!!

“disappointed”
Reviewed October 27, 2012

Took my 2 nephews here for the "day" and it took longer to drive there and back than to go thru the museum. I tried to make much of it for my nephews enjoyment, but they too were very disappointed. Really not much to it.
