I read a lot of reviews before I visited so I knew not to expect much, but I figured I would stop by here while visiting the other museums in town. The dinosaurs were cool to look at and I glanced at the info about them but I was probably there for like 10 minutes. It is really cool to... More

Where's the museum?? It's one room with a basement with some pages to color. My kids were disappointed to say the least and I don't know what the draw is!

We were puzzled to see such a small museum of its kind. We were done visiting in less than 45 minutes. Coming from a big city,we thought this would be a comparable museum, but its still very interesting. Do plan to do more activities while in the area other than visiting this museum.

Our grandkids just love visiting the Dinosaur Discovery Museum. They have a great presentation of skeletons of various species in addition to a place in the lower level for the kids to "dig" for fossils. It is a great place to go on a rainy day!

We visited this museum today. There is no entrance fee, but suggested donations. The children loved to look at the dinosaur models. They especially liked to look at the real bones that were there. They also enjoyed the activity in the basement of unearthing a dinosaur skeleton. It was a good place for about an hour or two. It would... More

Stopped by the museum and found it to be a nice little place to see dinosaur bones. It is not a big place but they pack in the bones. This is a place my grand kids would like to visit. The place is free but donations are requested.

Great great place to see dinosaurs of all kinds. Really well done. The kids will love it. Adults have enough to do too to make it for the whole family.

Only one story, this museum is the perfect size for small children. Our grandsons, ages 4 & 7, thought it was great! The gift shop had some reasonably priced items. It was a nice stop on our visit to Kenosha.

Nice little place for kids to play for an hour. Nothing more, nothing less. Don't expect much. For little kids under 10 for sure. The Dino dig in basement on weekends seems to be the biggest hit for kids. Sometimes kids can help clean real dino bones :)
