Wow! Thanks so much for taking the time to right this wonderful review! It comes as a surprise to many people that some dinosaurs had feathers, or that they're related to modern day birds, and we love sharing those facts with our visitors. It sounds...More

The Dinosaur Discovery Museum packs a lot of dinosaurs and dinosaur evolution into one fairly small room. You will be greeted immediately when you enter the gallery by the toothy grin of a T-rex - it might cause you heart to beat a little faster....More

Thanks for taking the time to share your adventure! Our Museum may be small, but it is jam-packed with information, and actually houses the largest collection of Theropods (meat-eating dinos) in North America. If you really take your time and look at each specimen, you...More

The displays are incredible, as well as the information about all of the species. There is a nice gift shop and more to do downstairs for children. Very reasonable admission charge.

The love of all things dinosaurs will find its match at the phenomenal dinosaur Museum. So much age appropriate things to look at, touch and learn from. Wonderful way for the whole family to enjoy the day and learn exciting new things.

This building was a former Post Office - beautiful building from the turn of the century. Dinosaurs from around the world with easy to read descriptions

It is a great little museum for children. The big dinosaur in the museum catches children by surprise. They should open up fossil digs for children and not just school trips. They might also want to add more exibits.

We heard about the Dinosaur Discovery Museum, when we were being given a ride on the streetcars and the pilot/operator told us how good the Dinosaur Discovery Museum was for kids. So, when we came to the streetcar stop, we got off and headed to...More

There is no admission price, as it is a free museum. They do have donation boxes though if you want to make a donation.
