Went with my 12 year old son who is still very much interested in dinosaurs. He had a blast, although I would point out that I think this place is most appropriate for the younger kids (ages 5 to 10), as well as any dinosaur...More

My son enjoyed the dinosaur world, fossil dig was a good experience, indoor museum was cool, we saw the dinosaur fossils, animatronics was an added special children love. Overall, we had a good time.

Visited recently with a toddler. To be honest we didn't expect much more than a roadside tourist attraction, and that is part of it. However if you have young children I would recommend. The quantity of dinosaur statues was surprising, many more than expected. Our...More

The dinosaurs are statues in a natural setting, similar to what you might see in a museum. The fact they did not move didn't detract from my 5 year old grand twins enjoyment!

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.
