Visit with Grandson

Tripadvisor rating Reviewed on

I visited the National Dinosaur Museum with my Grandson for Father's Day. While he is only 2 years old he had a fantastic time. Will definitely be taking him back when he is a bit older.

Fantastic

Tripadvisor rating Reviewed on

My 3, 5 and 7yr old spent so much time outside with all the sculptures before even getting inside and seeing the skeletons and other sculptures - great for anyone who is dinosaur mad.
