This center has a good variation of displays from complete fossils to reconstructions. The aquatic section has lots of different displays. Not many hands on displays though. Good gift shop and they have a military discount.

This is the place to go if you do not have the time to visit Dinosaur National Monument or the Field Museum in Chicago for your junior paleontologist.

We visited with my Daughter and 2 grandchildren. It is very interesting and my grandson (7) loved looking at the dinosaurs. I thought it was pretty pricey for what there is to see. We did not take the tour and maybe we should have? Not...More
