Inexpensive dinosaur museum contains fossils and a wide variety of displays. Lots of old movie posters from the dinosaur genre.

A gem!!! Don't expect the British Museum; instead, stop and savor this delightful and quirky collection of dinosaur and dinosaur-movie memorabilia! I totally loved it and hope to return someday!

This little dinosaur museum is a gem. I've been to many exhibits, but this one made the experience more real and personal and bigger. Dinosaur tracks are a big part of the museum and well worth reading in depth about tracks around the world. Best...More
