I have never seen a store like this. I was very impressed and bought my daughter an amphibian crossing sign that you won"t find anywhere else.

This is a very cool large store with all kinds of Dinosaur bones, teeth, fossils and more. There is a beautiful collection of natural stone jewelry and lots of other things you can look at that are also for sale. There's a fun kids area with reptiles too.

We took a group of boys here; age 11. They loved the games inside; pacman, basketball shooting arcade style, skeet ball, fun science type/learning games, a movie about the land and dinosaurs, and a hands on reptile visit. Takes about 1.5-2 hours.

It was raining and with 3 kids under the age of 5 we were looking for a place to visit that was indoors. The gift shop had alot of really nice science/art/dinosaur items. The kids really liked it. We paid admission to the museum. That was a waste. It was more of an arcade with a few science things thrown... More

We have been meaning to check this out for years when we visit the area. Please call ahead for the adventure zone. If they have a field trip they delay opening to the public. This is priced right for what it is. There are tanks of reptiles and 2 gators outside. They have about 10 science/dinosaur related activities and about... More

My wife and I stopped by one afternoon to check it out as she loves dinosaurs. We were half expecting more of a learning/museum experience than the arcade like area at an additional cost. The store on the other hand had some nice pieces in all price ranges on display. I thought it was nice to see the items marked... More

The arcade here is a great deal if you like games and can spend an hour or two playing them. We visited during the day on a Monday when the heat of the sun chased us inside. The games were fun and appropriate for ages 4 and up. We all felt bad for the live animals that were caged in... More

This is a pretty neat place in an unexpected area. I took my two toddlers here one day. They loved the games and animals in the back. The staff was friendly and polite.
