Rocky Mountain Dinosaur Resource Center Reviews & Ratings
While they don't have the most square footage, this museum is packed full of cool skeletons and interesting facts! This was my first visit to the museum and I went with my husband, 3 year old son, and 1 year old daughter. Everyone had a good time! The entry price is decent, and they have a well stocked gift shop with neat items for all ages. It was very quiet when I went, but well staffed. They offered a tour, but I did not attend. We got to see a few people working with the 3D printer, and one of them even gave my son a claw they had printed! Everyone we ran into asked if we had any questions, and the whole visit was wonderful!
Staff was very friendly. Has a lot of dinosaurs to see and learn about. Wish there was some more interactive things for kids to do while there. However was well worth the visit. Maybe they should consider scavenger hunt booklet/stickers for kids to mark as they tour.
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.
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.
If you like dinosaurs, this is an awesome place. It has activities the kids can do and some hands on stuff to touch and feel. If you go during the week you can see people putting together skeletons and models as well as removing rock from the fossils.
