  • I found it on time for tour guides if you're interested. Some very interesting facts I didn't know. Nice employees, clean. Souvenirs not to expensive, most things are reasonable, a few things could break the bank... those items are gorgeous though and worth it! Food nearby literally walking distance, street tacos, hamburgers, pizza, you name it! I think for a little museum like this it could be a little cheaper. But it passed the time and we don't come out empty-handed. Everyone had an enjoyable time.
  • A great little dinosaur museum, they do real conservation and restoration work there and have really nice exhibits. A great stop if interested in paleontology and dinosaurs in general. Our tour guide was knowledgeable and did a great job! Once surrounding community. Good stop while traveling.
