“Enjoyable visit”
Reviewed September 23, 2012

For anyone who is interested in dinosaurs this is the place to visit. Plenty of skeletons and beautiful geodes and rocks. Worth the money and quite interesting. We spent two hours looking at everything and the time just flew.

“Amazing!”
Reviewed August 28, 2012

If you love dinosaurs and fossils, this is the museum for you! While the museum itself is really one huge room, there is a lot on display. Everything from rocks,minerals and gems, dinosaur bones, and fossilized fish and plants are here. There are several almost complete skeletons of several species of dinosaurs. I was told the museum has the second most complete female T-Rex in the world. Great place to spend a few hours. After you pay admission, you get a pass to visit anytime in 2012 for free.

“Great place to visit!”
Reviewed June 24, 2012

We recently visited this museum with our 5-year old son who is very interested in dinosaurs. It is not a big museum, but there is a lot packed into a small space. He really enjoyed the T-rex skeletons. There was also a very nice collection of rocks/minerals. Free for ages 5 and under, which is nice, and we had a coupon for BOGO free admittance for adults (from the Black Hills Coupon Book), so it was only $7.50 for our whole family. Plus we got passes that allow us to go back anytime in 2012 without paying again.

Fun place to visit! We'll be back!
