This is an awesome store and extremely interesting for both kids and adults. A must visit when in the area. There is nothing I ever saw like this. Meet the owner, she is an actual archaeologist!

If you are cruising from Port Canaveral this is only a few miles south and near Ron John's surf shop. I have purchased a number of unique gifts here, amber especially.

My partner and I visited here with our 5 year old. It was not very busy, the staff were pleasant and we really enjoyed the Movie Cave and the young lady who gave us information about the animals in the Reptile Room. It was a nice way to pass some time and avoid the rain.

Lots of stuff to look at and buy if you have the money. We went with 3 kids between 9 and 11 they all enjoyed it and thought seeing stuff that old was "cool". Great way to spend some time while waiting for the sun to come back out. This has become a must visit for my 10 year old... More

We had a couple of hours between the time we checked out of our hotel and when we could board our cruise ship. We took our boys to the Dinosaur store and for just a few dollars a piece we were able to keep them occupied while we waited....

This place has so much stuff, stones, crystals, Dino bones, etc it is great but not good for small hands...lots of breakables too. Nevertheless, they have an adventure area for small kids for $. We didn't do so not sure what that was like. It was closed when we were there.

My daughter and I spent about 2 hours here. It was worth the admission price to go in the adventure room. There were animals/reptiles and a movie about dinosaurs.

Rhiannon was amazing! She showed us the animals up close and talked in depth, very knowledgeable. It was lots of fun for our seven year old. Lots of games and no tokens, unlimited play.
