This is a small attraction. It's out in the middle of nowhere. Stop in if you pass it. Unless your kids are really interested in fossilized plants, it will take about 15 minutes to see it all. One of my kids could have stayed all day, staring at one piece of fossilized wood. The other 3 were done in minutes. Honestly, so was I. I remember going as a child and it seemed really cool at the time.
