  • It's just the right size for school aged children with some truly fascinating fossil and rock displayed. Very helpful and informative owner and staff. Do yourselves a favor and check it out...you won't be disappointed!

  • My wife and I visited the Roynon yesterday. We went in the afternoon and had time to examine each of the displays without any distractions. We were bowled-over by the quality of the fossil specimens. Better ammonites (like a nautilus) than we had seen anywhere else. More and better fossilized dinosaur eggs than anywhere else. It's an extraordinary collection of minerals and fossils. The Roynon hosts school class visits in the mornings and I can't imagine a better introduction to geology and paleontology. The kids prepare their own specimen boxes and take them home as a nice recollection of their visit. We were joined during our visit by Keith Roynon, the man behind the collection. He was most welcoming, gracious, and generous with his time. He described some of the challenges he overcame in amassing this surprisingly large array of amazing specimens. I recommend the Roynon to all. Call ahead of time to get information that will make parking easier.

  • This museum is off the charts as my kids say. We went with our christian, science study homeschool group. His excitement engaged the kids, and He respected our views. All I can say is this is must for any group of kids.

  • This is such an awesome, hidden gem in Escondido. My children - 8 & 10 - enjoyed it so much. Mr. Roynon is a wealth of knowledge and his passion for this museum is evident in his amazing tours. Coming from a San Diego native, I'd say this is a must see!!
