I was visiting with a friend from Utah and he had never been here so we decided to go last minute. It was a fun surprise to see the huge displays and actual fossils. We went on a Tuesday during school hours so we were 2 of only 8 or 10 people there. Take your time and read the info and learn while staring at the huge Dinosaurs . They have a room where they are working on uncovering bones right in front of you. $10.00 adults and worth it.

I read a few reviews online and the photos posted made this museum appear to be really good! I was done with the whole museum within an hour, perhaps since I didn't read every single description closely. This museum is definitely more catered towards children! Other than the dinosaurs, most items were kid related...there are hands on things for them to do and touch. I went in the evening when all the 3D movies were no longer playing. Perhaps as an adult I would have enjoyed those more than the kid related exhibits. The coolest thing was the shark and also the dark room with stars as you go through the first exhibit. If you have kids, they may enjoy this place, but not a MUST do if you are a solo adult. I didn't have a chance to see the gardens, but I hear those are great. Perhaps you can do both in one day!

As a local resident I've been to Thanksgiving Point many times. It is a great all around family venue. Lots of options for the kids. Dinosaur museum, farm area, gardens, shops and dining. They have something to do with the kids year round. All summer there are different festivals and things going on adding additional e. In the fall they have a corn maze and other outdoor activities. Excellent restaurant and cafe also. The restaurant is a little pricey for the whole family, but great for a business lunch. The cafe is great for the family. There is a cost for most of the different venues - so be aware of that.

I really enjoyed this place. It was the first time I had visited the thanksgiving gardens and it was an amazing experience. The gardens were beutiful to look at and they were so well maintain. They have a waterfall that it's so beutiful to look at and walk by it. It makes such a beutiful place to go take a walk with your friends,family, or even go on a date. The place is so big, there is so many things to look at. I think it is good for any age group to visit. It just such a beutiful experience you will never forget. So give this place a chance you won't regret it.

While cute and fun, this place is really overpriced. Farm Land Pros: good stroller access, easy to touch safe animals, can bring food in, nice staff. Cons: overpriced, small. Dinosaur Museum Pros: water and sand areas to excavate are fun (as long as it's not too busy), giant dinosaur skeleton replicas are cool looking for small children to touch, helpful staff. Cons: fake looking dinosaurs, small, overpriced, easily overcrowded.
