What is a Dinosaur Capital without the dinosaurs? The good folk of Glen Rose would not know, because between Dinosaur World, Dinosaur Valley State Park and the Creation Evidence Museum of Texas, there is a plethora of dinosaur exhibits to explore. With a playground, prehistoric museum and animatronics, Dinosaur World has something for everyone. To follow dinosaur footprints left in the mud, groups venture to Dinosaur Valley State Park where sauropod footprints are found along the river. Check out the public dinosaur excavations, which occur once a year for a week, at the Creation Evidence Museum. The Creation Evidence Museum also has exhibit on display, such as the Noah’s Ark replica.
For more fun educational finds, stop at Fossil Rim Wildlife Center to feed a giraffe, spy on a cheetah and much more. Do not forget to stop at Barnard’s Mill Art Museum. Added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1982, this museum is a must-see for art enthusiasts and fans of historic buildings.
