We expected to see dinosours but all we saw was a gift and novelty shop. I would not recommend this place.

My kids were really excited to see the Dinosaur Store so we rounded them up one rainy afternoon to go and check it out. After paying the entrance fee for the 'adventure zone' portion of the store we realized we'd made a mistake. There is nothing worth stopping for if you're looking for some hands on fun.

The main store was very nice but the kid play area was small and not fun for the kids. The reptiles were kept mostly in cramped tanks. Definitely not worth the price.

I went here at the old location and now they have a new store. The owner is very helpful. They have real specimens here from the smallest insect to full sized specimens and everything in-between. Really a cool place.

Best Dinosaur store - and the only Dinosaur store - we have ever visited! Awesome selection of fossils. Visiting this store is like visiting a museum where almost everything can be purchased! Fossils range from a few dollars to several thousand dollars. Probably the only place on the planet where one can shop for fossils of this quality. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

Mostly full of cheap trinkets, very few real or interesting items to see, you have to pay an extra charge to enter the back room where there are a few very outdated and boring sideshow type attractions, a cheap kind of ride that spins you round, there are also a selection of animals such as Gators and lizards, some other...

Everything dinosaur, interesting fossils, fun place to browse and shop. Prices range from being reasonable to extremely expensive but it's worth making the time to stop-in.

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.
