  • Fun for kids of all ages! The animatronic dinosaurs are semi in need of repair but I think that adds to their charm. Lots of fun and interesting dinosaur facts to be found throughout the whole museum. You can even try out an earthquake simulation. They also have a good sized gift shop.
  • Neat place in a fun little town. The displays are all very effective, the information is just enough that it isn't overwhelming. We enjoyed the animated dinosaurs and all the displays that have you a perspective on the size of these dinosaurs. Worth the visit and break for the heat.
