  • Amazing showcase! We loved every second of the place, and Danny - our tour guide - was knowledgeable and kind, even dealing with our random interjections and tangents hahaha. There are so many large and beautiful specimens here, along with a cleaning lab with active cleanings in progress - My fiance and I spent a solid 3 hours enjoying the tour and museum. You can even touch real dinosaur bones here! 10/10 would come back with my kiddo - it was 100% worth it!
  • It's a fantastic visit. You can see the work being done to recover the actual fossils through a wall of windows. There are countless displays of dinosaur skeletons, both actual and reproduction s. It is self guided with attendants available to answer questions. They also offer guided tours. Many hands on displays and a small children's corner. The gift shop is huge and well stocked. There is a photo corner that offers the chance for you to be seen being menaced by a large dinosaur.
