Dinosaur State Park And Arboretum, Rocky Hill Reviews

  • Great nature trails, and picnic spots. The hours and days the actual museum are open are pretty small, but there is just as much to do outside for free as there is inside, sdn you can still see dinosaur tracks. Not really a place to spend the day, but a nice morning or afternoon.

  • I was 30 when I found out this place existed.... how did I not know about it sooner!? Absolutly fascinating. My wife, daughter, and I loved it. Great stuff for adults as well as children. Definatly worth the trip.

  • Really interesting facts found here. I like how they left the footprints right where they were discovered, and built on top of to display and preserve. Under the lawn outside is more, but they are still waiting to get the funds to display then. The service is very friendly. Like they don't want you to leave kind of friendly. The trails are short but beautiful. Just avoid the trails after rain since there are swamps, and you'll get bombarded with gnats. Otherwise, perfect, and extremely well maintained. They even clear the leaves from the trail. The admission to the museum is cheap, at only $6 for adult at the time I wrote this. Might go again.

  • I go there a few times a week. It's kewl climbing all over the place, seeing things I've never seen before, and the best part is, I'm having such a great time, I don't even realize that I've been learning the whole time!!! Kewl!!!

  • A nice park. Not very big but was enough to hold the attention of my 5 + 11 year old niece and nephew. They actually enjoyed the wooded trails over the fossils and dinosaur tracks. Of course the gift shop was a hit as well! This park has been a family tradition for each of our past 3 generations since it was built! You'll like it.
