Love the place, specially fun for the dino fans and kids. They have a playground/picnic area and a souvenir store. You can enjoy the bone yard or fossil dig the make at different hours. Nice spot to enjoy with the kids.

Wonderful place to visit, but NOT when it is hot! So many models of dinos to see and the gift shop and playground were nice too. We brought our lunch and ate at the picnic tables. Good place to go and take children.

That's what my 4 year old grandson said at each turn when he saw the next dinosaurs come in to view. Hopping, skipping with his hands in the air! Just about says it all. We all had a good time...

2 to 3 hours. Check the fossil dig times (4 or 5 times a day as I recall) and you may want to schedule accordingly.
