Our grandsons certainly enjoyed our afternoon at Dinosaur Land. The exhibits are well marked, plentiful, and fun for the younger ages. Our grandsons range from 5-8 years of age and enjoyed their visit. But I sense that someone a bit older might expect more action...More

Noticed this place as we drove on route 522. Laughed, but then stopped for a look. As others wrote a retro, kitschy place. Who would have thought a dinosaur exhibit in the Shenandoah Valley. Also a gift shop with plenty of dinosaur items. Great Americana....More

You know its a tourist trap. But you just cant help yourself. Of course kids love it. Be sure to also enjoy the large outdoor flea market on summer weekends.

Though some of the dinos were definitely showing wear and tear from age, the boys loved it. We went around 2 times and they especially liked the pictures they took.

Stopped with a friend and my 9 year old son. Cheesy road side attractions are so much fun! Probably paid more than it was worth but it was a good place to stop, walk around and use the bathrooms. Make sure you get a picture...More
