“be sure to check out the working paleontology lab”
Roam among the dinosaurs, explore a Carboniferous Forest, and dive deep into a Cretaceous Ocean at the Museum of Ancient Life. Come visit one of the world’s largest displays of mounted dinosaurs with 60 complete dinosaur skeletons in our galleries, along with more than 50 hands-on exhibits. This is the destination to enjoy learning about our pre-historic animals, playing with toy dinosaurs in the Erosion Table, and digging for fossils in the quarry dig. Also, be sure to check out the working paleontology lab where workers are unearthing real dinosaur bones. Right now, the lab is working on a 150-million-year-old long neck dinosaur called a Barosaurus. You can even pretend to be a paleontologist yourself in the Junior Paleo Lab by casting your own fossil and drilling a real fish fossil to take home.
This is the best dinosaur museum I have ever seen. The other review can't be about this place. I have never seen staff more friendly. I loved it and so did my children.
So disappointed! We went to the Museum of Natural Curiosity and it was so busy and lots of the things to do where either broken or just boring. The line for the rope tour was ridiculously long (like hours!)This place could be fun if it wasn't super crowded. Plus there wasn't a whole of employees around to really help with the chaos.
This is a great museum for young children but is not at all geared for teens and adults. Not to mention the vast majority of displays are replicas not actual fossils. I was very disappointed and would recommend against coming here unless it's to give your children something to do.
