“Unveiled History”
Reviewed 14 April 2013

If you are close to this museum it is worth the trip. It is an amazing unveiling of 110 million year old dinosaur footprints in mass. I have never seen such a clear visual of history. Under a large steel pole-barn are at least 60 dinosaur footprints that reveal the path of these giants. Great field trip!! It is a short trip, might take only an hour to visit, but worth it for sure!

“Nice place to stroll.”
Reviewed 19 January 2013

Enjoyed strolling outside and looking at the dino tracks. Its nice that they covered them for preservation. The structure was tastefully done and the entire outside area looks very professionally landscaped. Inside are 2 rooms with local history and prehistoric displays. Worth a stop.

“Needs some work”
Reviewed 10 June 2012

We arrived on Saturday, June 9, with lots of anticipation of what we'd find. After paying $20 for the five of us, we headed out to see the dino tracks. Located under a large, covered pavilion, we were disappointed that we weren't given access to view the tracks up close. In fact, the walkway keeps you pretty far from the tracks. Worse yet, there were no signs or interpretations of what we could barely see with our eyes. Very disappointing. There was a half-finished large-scale t-Rex dino located under the pavilion as well. It kinda fit the theme we were experiencing...not complete. It seems the museum needs some time to get these things worked out, especially if it's going to promote the dinosaur aspect of its exhibits.
