A very nice place to take young ones. Plenty to do for 2-3 hours. Can add the ride, too. There is a little wildlife area with cages or statue type animals. My grandchildren had quite an adventure to talk about.

We have been to several dinosaur museums but this has been our favorite. The small fee for the adventure room was well worth it. The kids (ages 4 and 7) could have spent hours in there alone. The third and fourth floor exhibits of the...More

We went here on a rainy day while visiting. The kids enjoyed the museum and they played in the arcade for hours. It did the job and gave military discount :)

The dinosaurs are vividly painted and displayed in realistic colorful settings (not just skeletons), so she would probably like it. There is also freedom to wander around the multiple rooms. Other things to do in the area... More

There were just a few toys, but I don't recall any particular ones. They sell authentic fossils, bones, skeletons, teeth and a few reproductions. You might check their web site.

I passed by earlier in the week and everything seemed normal. In addition, the parking lot was full. Week before last, I did read they were making some changes/upgrades (Florida Today). Will check further.
