We planned our visit during the heat (and rain) of the afternoon. Store is free to enter. $8 for kids in the Adventure Land (only $5 for adults). They have a few old time arcade games! I played an hour!!! It was cool! There was a very small exhibit of snakes, and gators, but I loved the arcade!!! So did... More

Interactive aspect most appealing. Beautiful displays. A must-do outing for those interested in that time period. A great rainy day activity that is well organized and interesting peaking the interest also of those unfamiliar with the era.

The store has some interesting rocks and dinosaur items. You have to pay extra for the arcade-style games, which we skipped.

Browsed around a bit and the disgusting looking worker behind the desk was out in the open picking God knows what from under his nails with a knife, I took one picture of a dinosaur on the... More
