The visit is split into 3 parts, with a walk through bronze statue of dinosaurs - real size - in their environment. The views from the location are really amazing, but we were a bit disappointed by it. It then moves into a theatre to look at films around dinosaurs discoveries in Winton, and explanation around the process. Much better and instructive, my 2 9yo kids really enjoyed it and i found this very informative. the last part of the visit is the laboratory - the tour was really impressive and well organised. the visit is quite long, around 2.5/3hrs, but worth it, and well designed for kids. I left the the museum really impressed by the work they are doing, and the passion behind it. Definitely worth doing

This was the object of my 5 day drive from Brisbane to occupy myself over Xmas when covid prevents overseas travel and interstate travel iffy. Did the tour of the lab, canyon and collection. All well presented by the guides and very interesting. But i expected more dinosaurs. I now understand why they dont have as many as i expected...but still didnt meet my expectations. Still a very interesting place. Well worth visiting.hopefully in 5 years time can visit again and see a few more things they have dug out the ground

The Australian Age of Dinosaurs is a must do when in Winton. With the Ultimate Dinosaur Pass we were able to visit Dinosaur Canyon where you can see lifelike dinosaurs roam the landscape and learn all about the dinosaurs and their environment (also the sweeping views of the surrounding land are beautiful), the collection room where you can see real dinosaur bones and fossils up close and the preparatory laboratory where you can watch volunteers uncover fossils and even touch a real dinosaur bone. Our guide Sarah was extremely knowledgeable, informative and enthusiastic and happily answered any questions we had. We came away having a new appreciation for the Australian landscapes, biodiversity and ecosystems and dinosaur history and research. There is also great cafe and gift shop in reception. Would definitely recommend!

Amazing experience! You get to go on 3 different tours - one outdoors, where you can really visualise the time of the dinos, one of the fossil room, and one of the lab. All three of our tour guides (Michelle, Jacque, & Jennie) were great, very enthusiastic and willing to answer my many questions! The tours are well run and it's nice you get to see a variety of what they have there, especially the fossil lab, and learning about how the fossils get found and then go through the lab, studies, and then finally display. Definitely recommend this place. Stunning views as well.
