Testimonials

Blown away with the displays for a smaller museum. Also an incredible value. If you're passing through with a couple hours to kill, it's definitely worth a stop.

- Aaron Carter

Had a ton of fun here. I was very impressed by the different exhibits and the dinosaur lab where they work on the fossils. All of the displays kept me very engaged.

- Brian Brindle

My husband and I brought our son to the Dino Festival and Dragon Festival! He loved it! Great way to have a family day together, but fun and educational at the same time!

- Dana Yeatts

My kids loved it. Drove an hour to it and worth it.

- David Hobbs
interactive

We had a great time looking at the exhibits. There are a number of interactive things (not available during Covid, but will be eventually). My kids were fascinated by the ants!
