“Good clean family fun for kids!!!”
Reviewed July 22, 2014

My kids loved this place and want to go back already. It has been improved a lot over the years and provides a nice learning environment for kids to see dinosaurs as well as plants, rocks & fossils. They have little activity books for the kids as well, and they get a prize when they complete it. There is a little cafe and gift shop if you get hungry or want a souvenir, although they are a little pricey. I will go again for sure. Check out their website calendar, they do have some Saturdays during the summer where they are free for certain times of the day (ex: 4-8 pm)

“Needs Dino Updates”
Reviewed July 22, 2014

Would like the see there be more updates to the outdoor dino park. Something for very young children to enjoy as well as something for teens to get into. Everyone likes dinosaurs and I think this could be updated. The indoor museum is awesome!

“Happy Dinosaur Enthusiasts”
Reviewed July 9, 2014

I live with four dino loving boys- and they think this place is great. It is a large outdoor park with awesome dino statues throughout. We always walk the trail to see it all, but spend most time at the playground, and in the dig site (big sandbox with "fossils" at the bottom). Nice place to visit for a couple of hours on a day with nice weather.

“Kids loved it”
Reviewed July 8, 2014

The whole family enjoyed it... they only have one section with animated dinosaurs however it is captivating.Even my one year old thought it was real because he leaned all the way back in his stroller. My 8 year old also loved it. There is some hiking, they have a fun interactive book where it encourages the kids to go find the dinosaur and you get a little poster at the end which is cute... I really liked the museum a lot. They have tons of stuff, outside when you go through they have a play ground for the kids to enjoy and mom and dad to relax a little bit. They also have some rock digging so you can 'find the rocks' and cut your own geo'ds
