FAMILY FRIENDLY! Our wonderful guide Doug gave us an engaging and captivating tour. I think the adults in our group were even more excited than the kids! It's really an great opportunity for the kids to be able to touch fossils and Doug even let us do some proper digging with equipment! As he said, it was a "once in a lifetime" opportunity. The museum is small but so very packed with amazing things to explore. Can't wait to check out the dinosaur ridge!
Our guide Young Mr. Todd has so much knowledge had no problems answering questions from all. When talking to the children he always treated them with respect. There wad no silly questions & Mr. Todd always told the children their answer to he's questions were good. EXCELLENT place to take the family.
