Kids loved coming here. The park was the right size for hiking around and enjoying the dinosaurs. They had a great kids area to color and to do crafts. Some day over the rainbow, we will be back.

This is a fun place for both adults and kids. To see the life-size dinosaurs outdoors poised so that you could take photo's that look like they are chasing you or about to eat you is creative license for your scrapbook . The natural setting outside highlights the size of these beasts like no other museum. The park is an... More

Very fun to wander around outside and view the displays. Kids enjoyed this as well as my husband and I. Inside was really cool also with lots of gems and minerals to look at. We had a lot of fun. Good value

My 2 year old liked it, but didn't love it. She got scared of some things. I think she might of bee To young, some of the dinosaurs weren't in good shape.

This park requires you to walk a lot to see the dinosaurs so make sure if you have little kids you take a stroller. If it is hot out it is not worth it. Not a lot of shade and the whole play area at the end is not covered with shade. The slides and swings get very hot and... More

Had some time to kill so we drove to the park and museum. The outside park NEEDS major repairs. Was not worth the time or the money. The museum was a little more interesting. I would of given it 1 star if it was not for the museum.

Visited with my three young children. For the price they charge, there wasn't much to keep kids interested. Mostly just statues everywhere. Their most exciting part of the day was playing at the park. The hogle zoo dinasour exhibits were much more entertaining for the kids... Zoo had WAY more to do for practically the same price.

My husband and I came here for a few hours on a Friday morning and enjoyed seeing all the life-size dinosaurs outside (nice walking trails pass a wide variety of statues). There is also a dinosaur-themed playground for little kids where they can climb on top of dinosaurs, slide down a pterodactyl and swing. Inside the building is a small... More

We have been here several times and the kids always enjoy it. There is a museum inside with some interesting bones and rocks and such. Especially interesting is how you can see the scientists working behind some glass. One of them talked to us which was fascinating. The outside dinosaurs are a bit run down but it's a great place...

If you have little Dino fans this is a must!! We were regulars here for years and my boys could not get enough of this place. You get and indoor museum, outdoor trails with life size Dinos, playground, river, and animatronic dinosaurs. AWESOME.
