First off pros - seeing actual dinosaur tracks was very very cool. I feel our trip here was worth it just for that. The trails were pleasant, beautiful...

We had a very fun time at Dinosaur State park today. This is a small museum that can be walked through in mere minutes but they do a good job of doing...

Does anyone else find it amusing that the highway signs for the "Dinosaur State Park" are hanging next to signs for the Veteran's Home?

Disappointed. Despite what the name implies, this place is nothing like Jurassic Park.

so much fun and SO much more affordable than the dinosaur place in oakdale, CT. check out the craft room when the kids are tuckered out from walking!

My son loved it but I was left disappointed. At the very least having something scary it's a dinosaur park right?! And the outside area was pretty much just a walking trail : -/

My son loves dinosaurs and the place was good enough for a 5yrs old. I was disappointed but made the best of our trip. The outside area was also a bit confusing, I thought it was dinosaurs trails.

The exhibit itself was very small, but only costs $6 for adults. There are nice hiking trails at the park too.

My dad took me here when I was a kid. One of my favorite places in CT. I have such fond memories of the state park. Who doesn't love Dinosaurs?!!!

We walked the trails and did some letterboxing yesterday and came back for the exhibit today, our boys really enjoyed it! Educational yet small so it held their attention the whole time.
