This place has only grown and gotten better over the years. It's like visiting a fascinating museum, where you are close enough to virtually touch everything. Of course its all for sale, but even if you are not buying, its just great to visit and see all this neat stuff. We always buy a few things for the grandchildren, and... More

I went in to check it out before my niece came to town.Don't let the out door sign with the words "Museum" fool you. It's a gift shop with a game room attached. You have to buy a "armband" pass to play the games/machines. It's a very small space with cheesy games. Would probably take 45 minutes to play everything.... More

My family (consisting of two boys 5 and 8) were going to spend the afternoon here. Not quite enough to keep busy for a whole afternoon, but there is the store, a ride, and plenty of video games, puzzles, basketball, ski ball, etc. Informative videos are played in a separate area. There is a room with live animals (alligators, frogs,... More

It's more of a store than a museum but great collection, most everything is for sale and most of it is authentic. Naturally, these things are rare and therefore expensive. They have an adventure zone for kids but I would not recommend bringing children who like to pick up things for a closer look as they have a "you break... More

The kids, 13 year old and 15 year old, and I went to this store to check it out. This store is absolutely stunning! It is very different from the other beachy stores around. I could have spent hours in this store admiring all of the fossils. There were so many interesting things to see even the kids were thrilled.... More

We all had fun shopping in the Dinosaur store, it was full of interesting fossils and artifacts! We spent at least an hour there looking at all the souvenirs, gems, fossils and jewelry. Didn't go into the children's play area but it looked like it would be a blast for young kids!

I love to go to this place and think it is much, much, more than a "store". This is like a small museum, hands on exhibits, live animal zoo, game room, archeology exploring and a gift store with prices from .99- $10,000.00. Every time my grandson, the dinosaur fanatic, comes for a visit the only place he wants to go... More

They say store and Museum It's not a museum. A place to play inside or do birthday parties. Boring place for tourism.

There were great fossils and neat stones to look at for the entire family. Not sure that the Adventure Zone was worth the extra price.
