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. There is a learning center with video, a fossil exhibit, birthday party area, and gift shop as well.

The Dinosaur Museum is located next to the World's Largest Toy Museum and the Branson Military Museum on Hwy 76. Just look for the giant dinosaur head sticking out from the building. Longtime visitors to Branson will recognize this as the location of the former Waltzing Waters Theatre.

"Calling all junior paleontologists"
August, 2017 NEW
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.

Website made this place seem awesome. Its a waste of $10. Just big dinosaur plastic toys that you aren't supposed to touch.

I have a child that loves dinosaurs, so this was right up her alley. It neat to see the different sizes up close. She really enjoyed it. She is also young, so the fact that this takes about 30 minutes or so, was just right for her. What keeps me from rating this higher is the price. Admission should either be lowered to reflect the smallness of the museum or more needs to be added to justify the price. I do understand that this is a tourist destination city and it can be rather pricey, but the price did not justify what was there.

I felt like it was too expensive for what they had in the exhibit. Only took about 15 minutes to walk thru.

Took my 4 year old here after getting some free tickets. He enjoyed it but not as much as I expected. It is not very big, the dinosaurs are neat looking and it's informative. It's a self guided tour. For free it was fine. Glad I didn't pay.
