    Great location

    Really enjoyed ourselves. There were dog water bowls by the bathrooms. No problem with our pooch in the gift shop, however, not allowed in the museum.

    Prehistoric Fun!

    Dinosaur World was great! The trails were really nice and mostly shaded. They do have at least one dog watering station but it’s more convenient to carry your own pups water with you. Even the gift shop was dog friendly and the pups picked out their own plush dinosaur toys. The gift shop was big and the prices on souvenirs was reasonable. They didn’t sell food or drinks that I saw so bring your own. Staff was really friendly, liked the pups, and were very helpful. They do strictly enforce mask wearing while indoors and encourage it if not socially distancing when outdoors. Since not all the hands on exhibits are open due to Covid they’ve dramatically reduced their ticket prices. The gem mining part is currently open with social distancing measures in place. The one minor issue I didn’t like was that I didn’t see much in the way of grassy areas for pups to take a little pit stop and the edges of the trail are roped off to encourage visitors to stay on the trail. I understand they don’t want visitors messing up the Dino sculptures but it would have been great to have a little bit of trail edge or a few grassy areas that aren’t roped off for the pups to take a break. We didn’t make it the whole way because it got too hot (typical Florida heat) so I would suggest visiting in the cooler months and bringing a good amount of water for the puppers. Overall, we had a great time and will be back when it gets cooler!

    Kai Had The Best Time!!! 🦕🖤

    Super dog friendly! Great place to socialize, get cute photos, walk, and learn about Dinosaurs!!! We ended up buying the annual pass ($30) so we can bring Kai back!

    Very Pet-Friendly...Cool Experience

    Great spot for a family to spend all day or just to let the dogs stretch their legs in the shade for a bit. No option to buy food but plenty of space to sit and eat, if you bring lunch. Drink machines

    Amazing Location And Super Dog Friendly

    The location is such a great experience for all ages ! Our pup was greeted with open arms and the clerk even offered doggie bags. The museum isn’t dog friend but everything else is! Amazing photo opportunities and even a water bowl for the doggies to drink from. Would definitely visit again.

    Great to walk your dog!

    Dinosaur World was dog friendly. We traveled with our 90lb mix and 10lb mini schnauzer and there were no weight restrictions. We saw a great Dane there too. Take a large water bottle for your dogs since theres no water features for them and it gets hot! No water bottles in the vending machines so if you forget get one in the gift shop. Don't get too close to the water because there are mosquitoes. Plenty of shady areas to rest. Make sure your small dogs don't attack the dinosaurs. Lots of great photo ops.

    Great day with the dogs.

    We were on our way back from St Pete's Beach and were looking for things to do to break up the drive for the dogs. We were happily surprised to find that Dinosaur World allowed leashed dogs. The dogs enjoyed stretching their legs and checking out the sights and smells along the trails while we learned about dinosaurs.

    Teddy meets Dinosaur World

    I'm always looking for places I can take my dog Teddy. I especially enjoy when it's attraction place that is just as enjoyable for us humans. When I found out Dinosaur World was pet friendly, I thought why not check it out. I figured it would be cheesy. Something for kids to enjoy but my dad, Teddy and I took the two hour drive for the spontaneity of it.

    I was pleasantly surprised. Dogs do have to be on a leash but what a great place to walk your dog! In addition to having some very cool life size Dinosaurs to look at the vegetation is awesome! Yes you have pay an entrance fee. I think it was $10 or $15 for Florida residence but it was really a pleasant place to walk your dog and enjoy the sites. There were tons of different dinosaurs to look at while walking. Take your camera and have fun with Fido. You can also bring your own food and picnic there. They encourage it. You must carry doggy bags and clean up after your dog but that's a given for any responsible pet owner. I think they even sell or give you bags there.
