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.

We went to the store today and found that the museum was still under construction but spent well over an hour looking at the fossils and stones in the store. It was far more than we expected and found the owners were very happy to explain everything to us. The museum is a not for profit organization and being founded... More

There are really two areas here, the shop with a lot of gems, mineral specimens, gem jewelry, bones and fossils-- fun shopping for nature buffs tho if you're looking for bargains look elsewhere, they've really marked their items up. For an extra charge ($8 kids, $6 adults) you gain entry to the activity area with some animals (alligators, anaconda, other... More

When we arrived in Cocoa Beach on our first day, we spotted the Dinosaur Store while driving. It seemed like a neat stop for our girls. We walked around the store and they had tons of authentic fossils to look at, and even purchase if you wanted!!! We didn't have the time to do Adventure zone, but I know it... More

This place is awesome. For those who are in town to catch a launch or take a cruise and you have some time to kill, this is a fun way to spend some time, especially if you have kids. They have a little habitat area with live snakes, gators and fish... Some good items or gifts to buy for you... More

The store seemed to interest our kids more than the Adventure Zone which lost their attention pretty quickly. The did enjoy the panning for rocks, however, it was a very small bag and was over in literally a minute. I will say though, the bag had more than enough rocks in it to justify buying it when you compared to... More
