It’s just south of Uster, about a 20-30 min drive east of Zurich. Take A53 until the freeway ends then continue on Zurichstr for a few minutes. You can’t miss it.
The first time we went my 3yr old started screaming before we even got in the door, terrified by the life-size stegosaurus at the entrance. But later he loved it.
There are many life sized dinosaur models which may intimidate small children.
My kids loved this station where they could stamp dino foot prints in sand, then rake it smooth.
