My son and I recently visited Dinosaur Journey, the dinosaur museum in Fruita, Colorado, and the Children’s Nature Center, in Grand Junction, Colorado.
We were most impressed with the nature center because of the variety of reptiles, snakes, fish, and other creatures we could see. The center is clean, and the staff are friendly.
The dinosaur museum was interesting as it is full of fairly decent dino exhibits, along with a few robotic dinos that move around and roar. The T-rex is impressive but too scary for little children, in fact it seemed distracting from the rest of the exhibits.
