    Underwhelming is the perfect word here. If you're in the area and driving by, the visitor center makes for an okay visit, but the two overlooks out of town are simply a waste of time. It's hard to believe this is actually classified as a national monument.

    Nothing to see; avoid unless you have nothing better to do.

    Underwhelming. There's currently no public access to the fossil beds or excavation sites. There is a visitor center in town with fossils on display, but there is nothing to be said for visiting the vantage points for the public where they tell you about the rich history laying underneath homogenous scenery.
