This a great place for small children and people who are interested in dinosaurs. If this isn't you then don't bother going. It's cool to see the fossils if you've never seen them before, but overall nothing special.

We visited the museum recently to meet the world renowned paleontologist, Dr. Robert Bakker, who appeared to give a lecture and sign copies of his books. My daughter, an avid dinosaur enthusiast and future paleontologist, was super excited to be there. The museum itself is...More

I had no idea about the incredible amount of dinosaur footprints in the Connecticut Valley. Very interesting museum with a lot of interactive exhibits for the children. Only disappointment was that the weather was not good on the day we went because it looks like...More
