My family drove to DuBois, Pennsylvania, to visit Doolittle Station this past weekend. The moment we turned into the parking lot, I knew we had picked a great way to spend the day.
What is Doolittle Station?
Doolittle Station is a unique roadside attraction in DuBois, Pennsylvania. This attraction offers a dinosaur museum, a brewery, unique dining options, and more. They even offer the opportunity to spend the night in their private sleeping cars.
Things we did during our time at Doolittle Station.
I had no idea what to expect when my family arrived at Doolittle Station. I had read about it online a year or so ago, but no one I know personally had ever heard of it. Our trip started with a meal at The Roadside Café. The inside atmosphere was so much fun. It had a very vintage feel. The food was terrific and very reasonably priced. The three of us ate for around $30.
After lunch, we went to the dinosaur museum. It wasn’t in a huge building, but the admission was only $5 a person, so I thought it was a good value. They dinosaurs that children could ride, a giant sand pit, virtual reality pods, and very detailed animatronic dinosaur displays.
Some of the dinosaurs were a little run down, and the virtual reality pods weren’t all working, but it was still a fantastic attraction. It was easy to tell that a lot of care went into creating each dinosaur display.
The fun continued outside of the museum, where they had even more dinosaurs and a few dragons. They also had goats because no Pennsylvania roadside attraction is complete without goats!
Tourist trap or hidden gem?
Doolittle Station is definitely a hidden gem. There is so much to do in one location. Not many places have so many dinosaur animatronics in one place. It is worth a trip!
