Default Closest museum with dinosaur skeletons on exhibit?

My kids would love to see some museum quality dinosaur skeletons, but I haven't seen anything like this in Orlando. I don't mean manatee or sloth skeletons, but things like T-rexes, stegosaurs, apatosaurs, tricerotops, etc. Is there a museum with these even in Florida? I remember being in Denver and visiting their awesome museum with these fantastic exhibits. I don't understand why Orlando, being centralized in Florida, wouldn't have a large museum like this.

osc.org - DinoDigs

Several big skeletons, many small pieces, and a small area to dig for fossils.

I've seen better, but the OSC exhibit isn't bad, especially for younger kids.

There's also Dinosaur World

Personally, I thought it was kinda lame, but my boys really liked it when they were younger. They have a better fossil dig than OSC (at least they DID), and it can be fun to bring a picnic lunch and eat it outside.
