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.

"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.

Don't expect a mind blowing experience. If you are looking for something for the kids and don't have alot of money it's not bad. We are a family of 6 with two little ones and they had fun. It's for the kids.

Small dinosaur museum with self guided tours and nice displays of dinosaurs. They offer a fossil hunt and quiz throughout the exhibit, but never followed up with that at the end. Small movie area to view informational dinosaur movies. Worth the price paid to visit.

Plus: Staff friendly. Minus: Both bathrooms out of service...yikes! Figure 35-45 minutes tops for the walk thru IF you pace yourself slowly. A bit pricey all things considering.

It's a short tour, nice to see the relative size of the creatures, Would be great to the children thru and explain the creatures of the past. I had nothing else on my itinerary, so I went ( not expecting too much ).

"For young children it goes too fast for the money"

There are lots of great things to look at if you're an adult. Wonderful descriptions to read about the Dino's. Breathtakingly big. But for a 4 and 2 1/2 year old, told not to touch, it basically was over within minutes. For the money it went way to fast. We even went back through a second time to make it longer and still we were done in minutes.
