“A natural gem”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 August 2013

Our two kids 12 and 9 enjoyed the museum. They really enjoyed touching the bones and exhibits. As a science teacher I was very impressed with the collection and the easy to read displays. My family even spend time to look and discuss the idea of "which are closer to dinosaurs, reptiles or birds?"

I do wish that a small gift shop was available. It was great to see the specimens in the lab not ready for public display. It seems to be a working lab for the graduate students at the college.

Donations help run the museum.

“Great for kids!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 May 2013

My son loves dinosaur bones and this trip was well worth it for him! He is 7 years old. He was so excited and we enjoyed it as well. It is free which adds to the appeal :) Overall it is a well done museum.
We had some trouble finding it to begin with... it is actually located in the math and sciences building of the College of Charleston on the 2nd floor.
