“hands-on, interactive museum”

Dinosaur Journey tells the story of the history of life in western Colorado and surrounding areas with real fossils, cast skeletons and robotic reconstructions of dinosaurs. The hands-on, interactive museum includes paleontology displays, a working laboratory where dinosaur bones are prepared for display, a collections room where scientists study dinosaurs and other animals, a simulated earthquake ride, a dinosaur library reading area, a sandbox for making your own dinosaur tracks and a “quarry site” where kids can uncover actual Jurassic dinosaur bones. Allergy alert - the Kids' Dig Pit is filled with crushed walnut shells.

Great museum! Small, but some really fun exhibits. A number of dinosaur displays are animatronic, including one which sprays water across the room. Simple earthquake simulator, great gift shop with dinosaur themed items and crystals and minerals.

Small but appropriately priced. Jam packed with information. I'm a dinosaur nerd and really enjoyed our stop. We needed to get out of the car and stretch our legs for a bit, so my husband and went in. Took us about 45 minutes to explore, but we are fast readers. If you enjoy science or have a kiddo who's a Dino nut, definitely stop in!

Lots of good written information. Very out dated and needed a lot of maintence. Layers of dust and signs falling down. This place is full of potential. A few hands on kid activities.

On family road trip stopped with our 12 and 14 year old children. Had a blast! Most of the interactive attractions were geared toward younger children but interesting science and history to keep the attention and interest of dinosaur lovers of all ages. Worth the $25 family rate.
