Description

from Branson's Dinosaur Museum
Over 50 life-sized dinosaurs are displayed, from the very smallest creature, a 1-foot Microraptor, to the towering 42-foot tyrannosaurus rex that stands about two stories high. The models were made by paleo-artists who fashioned molds from the original dinosaur skeletons and then created the bodies.

All of the dinosaurs have descriptive details and visitors may take as long as they like on the self-guided tour. Pictures are encouraged. There is a learning center with video, a fossil exhibit, and gift shop as well.

The Dinosaur Museum is located on Hwy 76 next to the World's Largest Toy Museum and across the street from Bigfoot Fun Park.

"Loved Dinosaur Museum"
June 2018
My grandsons, age 6 & 9, loved the dinosaur museum. It was very educational. I loved the quiz sheet that had us searching for answers. We will visit again.

"Calling all junior paleontologists"
August 2017
Our 3 year old son was very excited to visit Branson's Dinosaur Museum. He loved wondering through the life-sized models. Learning about the dinosaurs. Seeing the artist's interpretations. Playing in the sand to find fossils.

From dinosaurs, sharks, snakes, scorpions and volcanoes, dinosaurs are by far our boy's favorite! Just last night he was explaining how large carnivores ate herbivores and smaller carnivores. Branson's Dinosaur Museum was a great place for our budding paleontologist.

"Dino Heaven"
July 2016
I read some of the other reviews before we went so I was prepared for a the warmer atmosphere and self paced stroll thru the facility. We arrived a little after 9:30AM so it was not too hot, and it was open and had a few families already touring.
The kids were immediately enthralled with all the huge dinos out front and the souvenirs to buy. but we kept them on task. I wish we had gone slower and read the info pages, but the kids were too excited to see everything. I took lots of pictures and enjoyed the movie. It was a fun experience. Hard to go backwards if another family is coming thru, so make sure you see it all the first time. We didn't stay to color, I forgot to ask and they didn't offer. But the kids enjoyed every minute. I wish the 'theater' sat more people. Our family pretty much filled it with just the 5 of us bc of the way the seats are arranged. But by the time we were ready to move on another family was ready to view so it was fine. Big groups will have to stand to view.

Tip: Booking online was super easy! I just showed my receipt and started my tour! Go early in the day if it's hot outside, that building is huge inside and hard to keep cool.

"Late Start"
August 2015
Got up early, the door said they opened at 9 that Sunday but we waited for 20 minutes before they unlocked the door. At that point we didn't have enough time to even go and explore and we didn't even bother going in, our schedule was too busy.

We were one of the first ones to visit today. The lighting inside the place was not turned on. There was no background music. It was just a quiet tour. My 18month old kid was the only one who enjoyed the place. The place needs remodeling and of course better lighting. Unless your kid is a dinosaur lover don’t waste your money at this place.

So, it's not Jurassic Park, but there are some great looking dinosaurs here. All of the young kids that were there, were having a great time. As a parent or grandparent, this is a great place to bring the little rug rats and watch them have loads of fun. Plus, it was air-conditioned, which was much better than the 100 degree days when we were there.

The gal at the front desk is a great salesman. She really advertises how great it is and sucks the kids in on finding gold fossils for 10% off of gift shop purchase. The gold fossils are just stuck to wall & you write down where you found the fossil. We found 7 of 10 fossils. Kids are not interested in reading research on dinosaurs as they want to find the gold fossils. They have a sand box with glued down fossils that have to be covered back up for next participants. If you do go buy tickets there not on Groupon. Cheaper on site. A fair price would be $3 for kids and $5 for adults.

My spouse and I really enjoyed all the dinosaurs - this place has some amazing ones! We sent pics to our 12 year old grandson and he’s excited to visit - and we’re looking forward to going back when he’s here in July. I love that it’s so affordable too...

Kids will love this. It felt a little cheap. The dinosaurs are nice but the fossil’s on exhibit are all obviously not real. They have a fossil discovery area where you can move the sand to search for fossils and it’s okay. They did have a nice deal though that if you find all of the golden fossil’s throughout you get 10% off at the gift shop.
