It's Americana! An odd, quirky rock shop that deserves a stop.

We stopped there on the way to the Grand Canyon. I wanted to buy some Petrified wood and well...that's what they sell. The place is definitely, No Frills, but I enjoyed the odd... read more

We stopped there on the way to the Grand Canyon. I wanted to buy some Petrified wood and well...that's what they sell. The place is definitely, No Frills, but I enjoyed the odd stuff around the place. The mannequins look like they have been outside for 20 years...creepy, cool and artsy, all rolled into one. They have a lot of... More

There are a few large dinosaur and concrete statues around Holbrook and many are in better shape. You can't get very close to most of these, either. But they are the most bizarre, with one dino eating a mannequin. There are two ostrich, but they are predictably smelly and best left alone. We stopped in the rock shop and bought... More

If you are driving by, turn around! This place is a hoot. Stuff all over the place. Stop in and take a peek. We got some really cool fossils here.

Saw the signs while driving on I-40 about feeding the Ostriches. Then we saw it from a distance with all of the tacky statutes. We figure what the .... and pulled in. We went into a rundown building to look at the stuff. A lot of stuff, some good and some that was very questionable! Got the feeling that I... More

Hubby and I saw the weird Dinosaurs from the Road so of course we had to go check it out. The whole place has a creepy feel. We went in the little store and I kept feeling like someone was gonna come out with a chainsaw at any moment and attack us. The older lady working there sort of had... More

I really like fossils and we stopped here because we'd heard it was weird. The rumours were true! We were met by an old African-American lady who told us some things were half off. There were also some Native-American children, about 16-17 in age, hanging around and commenting on everything we said. The place is basically a shack by the... More

What a waste of gasoline pulling off the interstate. I had my doubts right away because of the pathetic homemade dinosaurs along the interstate. Pulled in anyway because we are rockhounds and never leave a stone unturned. After walking in where do I start? The prices are horrendous!! We are rockhounds are familiar with the industry. Their 50% off is... More

A classic Rt.66/I-40 pit stop. A must do. Every time we have been there we were the only living beings evident, except for the large swarm of angry ostriches. (Sign on their enclosure reads "Feed the Ostriches", though there are no further instructions as to what you should feed them. They seemed a big aggravated.) Amazingly weird displays abound, many...

This place was hands down, one of the creepiest places I have ever been! My life flashed before my eyes on several occasions while we were here and I was constantly assessing for an escape route if necessary (and damnit, I was wearing my Tom's. . .). When my husband and I pulled up, we were promptly greeted by a... More
