Our Experience

My kids loved Expedition Dinosaur.  We took our time through the exhibit and stayed for about 2 hours.  With each different room, they had hands-on activities that kept them engaged.

If your kids are interested in dinosaurs, they would enjoy this exhibit!  We turned it into a learning experience and made sure to learn about each dinosaur they had featured at the exhibit.

Following each dinosaur, the kids got to stamp their passports and that itself was a lot of fun for them as they marked off each dinosaur.

Since we were there we took advantage of checking out the entire museum.  My kids loved learning about Wilbur May and seeing all of the different animals they had on display.

If the weather is nice we recommend packing a picnic to enjoy at the park!
