This is a must visit location if you are in the area. Two great films at the interactive center fill you in on the history of this amazing site. Lots of interesting displays and walking trails to explore.

I always enjoy doing something educational for the kids when on vacation. One day they'll thank me......This is definitely a neat place. They liked walking around looking at the fossils, for about 30-45 minutes, then they were done and ready to go.

I would recommend this place for a great chance to walk around outside on the rocks or in the woods along the river. Bring a squirt bottle and toothbrush if you really want to see some cool fossils. Lots of fun!
