I'm not a huge museum fan but this one was definitely worth the visit. Probably the best collection of dinosaur structures on earth. Glad we took the time to do it.

This museum is excellent!! The entire family was mesmerized by the authentic exhibits. We spent several hours going through the dinosaur exhibits. They have a great guitar display and a very interesting old farm on site. Great for the entire family!
