The Dinosaur Store is an exotic gift shop with an assortment of real and casted dinosaur fossils. Think geodes, rocks, shells, animal teeth and Egyptian Pharaohs. . . and you might come up with the Dinosaur Store! In addition to the store, they also have an "Adventure Zone". This is an all day pay-to-play area. Adults run $6 and kids... More

We got there at 4:30 they closed at 5, I asked the girl at the counter about the little digging place because he just wanted to dig for dinosaur bones, we... More

I took my 5 and 7 year old boys here to fill about an hour in the middle of the day. What an awesome place! We spent almost 2 hours there! The store has everything that could possibly strike anyone's interest. The dinosaurs on the walls, the fossils, the gems stones and jewelry are all a sight to see. Very... More

We stopped here on a road trip to break up our drive. We did not pay to go into the Adventure Zone (which we decided after reading TA reviews) so we just walked around the shop. We had a family of four adults with a one and three year old baby. It is not a good place to take such... More

As the name implies, The Dinosaur Store does have many rare, breakable fossil and mineral specimen pieces. Most of these types are in locked cases. However, some items, like the large vases and minerals from around the world are on display for customers to view. After 18 years of business, we still think it necessary to post a sign about...

You enter the gift shop that has everything from geodes and shells to reproductions of dinosaur castings and Egyptian themed replicas. The "Adventure" Zone is mainly for 3 year olds with short attention spans because it is limited in attractions. They have the requisite static orb, a basketball arcade game, a skeeball game, oh and about 5 dinosaur exhibits. There... More

It was my girl-friends daughters day to pick the activities for the day. She picked The Dinosaur store. I'm not much for Dinosaurs but this place was cool. It had a lot of interesting stuff. It didn't take long to check out but i recommend checking it out. It's pretty cool!

There are many things to learn and many helpful facts typed out to explain fossils and castings. They tell you directly or label if the specimen is a replica, casting or authentic fossil and or artifact. Very educational and has a little arcade part that is affordable for kids to play with a wristband so no need for tickets. The... More
