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

Every time we go back to CB to visit family we have to stop by this store. My girls love looking at everything and going to the dig room. It is a store, not a museum (although it seem alike a small one) so don't think you'll spend all day there. We have even brought some of the solid geodes... More

What an unbelievable waste of time. 5 adults ranging from 75 to 43, and one 7 year old were all extremely disappointed. This is a gift shop..some very good and interesting items for sale, but it's a gift shop with some items labelled for... More

They have a lot of really neat things to look at. Loved showing our girls all the bones and fossils. Which are all for sale. We had an uncomfortable moment when taking pictures of our girls in front of a sharks mouth. Apparently taking pictures is frowned upon inside. The cashier made a snarky remark about it not being a... More

Took my grand kids here and it really is more of a souvenir shop then a museum. The entrance to the gift shop was free but to see the live animals there is a fee
