This place is terrible. Looked cool from the outside but after going in you quickly notice the employees are only concerned with pushing their political views on the customers. Even the sign when you enter voices a anti-American view point. Not a place i want to bring my kids to thats for sure!

The dinosaur store has everything from geodes large enough to use as a coffee table, dino poop and hair from Mammoths. They also have great kid activities - or for people like me - kid inside but adult on outside.

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

DLC-CocoaBeach, Manager at The Dinosaur Store Adventure Zone, responded to this review

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
