I was a kid living a few towns away when the dinosaur tracks were first discovered in the mid-1960's. The State of Connecticut moved with uncharacteristic speed to designate it a State Park, and the area has had several upgrades since. We long-ago moved away,...More

Hello! We had an active 5 year old with us so we worked our way through the inside exhibits very quickly (45 mins). They also have a great set of hiking trails through the dense old growth forest around the facility with various attractions to stop at. We took a long hike and fully enjoyed it. If your group is up for hiking then you can spend about 3 hours at the park, more if you pack a picnic. If it is cold or raining, it may be as quick as 1 hour for viewing the inside displays. They also have classrooms for kids inside but there were no events when we were there. Hope this helps! Dennis

The museum is open Thursday, Friday and Saturday from 9:00 to 4:30 p.m. This reduced schedule will continue at least until the end of January. We expect to go back to a 6-day a week schedule early in 2018 in either February or March. Please call the park if you have questions at (860) 529-5816.
