This is a small attraction and it doesn't have lots of jazzy features but it's massively charming and just right for young budding archaeologists. It's not too big so they don't get bored and there's lots of fun interactive games and ideas. The people running...More

Just right for young children, plenty of interaction and not too long for them to lose interest. We made a trip to Hull after Dinostar visited our daughters school where the excitement started. Not too technical for children but enough facts to keep teenagers and...More

We would argue that our dinosaur museum does offer value for money – £9 for a family visit to a privately-funded dinosaur museum is not expensive! In terms of your visit, I doubt that you read “everything” (few people do) – I haven’t counted up...More

I am sorry that you didn’t enjoy your visit to our dinosaur museum but I would suggest that your review misrepresents our attraction. We have real skeletons as well as genuine and replica dinosaur bones – many of which you can touch. Our life-size dinosaur...More
