  • Amazing showcase! We loved every second of the place, and Danny - our tour guide - was knowledgeable and kind, even dealing with our random interjections and tangents hahaha. There are so many large and beautiful specimens here, along with a cleaning lab with active cleanings in progress - My fiance and I spent a solid 3 hours enjoying the tour and museum. You can even touch real dinosaur bones here! 10/10 would come back with my kiddo - it was 100% worth it!
  • So many cool things to see in one visit! We learned so much and enjoyed hearing about the latest findings and discoveries in this still emerging field. There is a nice gift shop at the end and the guides are so knowledgeable; we really would want to schedule a private tour to deep dive into specific topics. The drive to Woodland Park is also so beautiful. Take your time to enjoy the backside views of Pikes Peak as well. We will be back again!
