There were many excellent replica skeletons of dinosaurs, undersea reptiles, and pterasaurs. The guided tour is amazing though not required. The place is great for dinosaur enthusiasts of all ages. They also have a section where children can play.

If you're into dinosaurs, this is a fantastic museum that both kids and adults will probably enjoy. Lots of statues, artifacts and tons of information. Plenty of parking.
