T Rex Museum

The T Rex Museum is a place where kids can get up close and personal with the prehistoric past, where fun and imagination are inspired by head-to-head encounters with life-size models. The idea is to take advantage of the Sonoran Desert Uplands' similarity to the Gobi Desert, where many important paleontological finds have been made. In that setting, the museum recreates dinosaur digs for children of all ages through educational exhibits and interactive activities, including stations that allow visitors to find and take home their very own fossil. Other areas of the museum playfully explore the parallels between dinosaurs and dragons.

Absolutely fun for the children . Dr Samuel is entertaining and witty. He managed to settle the inquisitive minds of my 2 young ones. They are looking forward to another visit there. 😊

This is a fun kid friendly activity I would not recommend kids under the age of 3 It's really for kids who can listen and follow instructions As long as you go expecting a very authentic experience and don't get it in your head that this is a typical museum environment, you will have a good time Dr Samuel sure knows his stuff!
