I have been going to this shop since I was a kid. The shop is amazing. It has real fossils and other interesting real items for sale. It is not like the prefab museum gift shop that you find in any museum. The owners are pleasant and have a great tie within the community. This is the place to go... More

I found an item I was interested in and asked if it rusts or tarnishes how do I care for it. She responded that "It didn't rust... More

After browsing the store for a few minutes, heading downstairs and discovering more souvenirs we had decided on a few things to buy. The young man at the counter was helpful and nice but another lady became present in the... More

I need to first say, the young gentlemen working when we first arrived was excellent. We had just finished lunch and I had my carryout container. He politely told me no food was allowed and offered to keep it at the counter for me. We browsed the store and were in line paying when a lady emerged with 2 small... More

There is a great collection of gems and fossils. Not all of it local but a lot of it is. Some of the stuff is a bit expensive, but it is as close as you can get to taking home something from the dinosaur museum.

We did not spend as much time as we would have liked to in this shop...a treasure-trove of fossils and rocks. I bought a pair of shark-teeth earrings (irresistible), while the others bought other jewelry and stones. Be sure to go downtown to see another huge inventory.

Discovered the store today during a snowstorm. The british lady was very nice and found a great trilobite, they have a good selection for a small shop. Amazing turtle shell and cave bear skeleton.
