We spent about an hour looking at the "exhibits" but overall, it just wasnt worth the money. The store itself is neat but filled with breakables.

My inner 9 year old self was screaming with excitement when we walked in! I bought a solid majority of my gifts to bring back to Iowa (ranging from my 7 year old nephew to my almost 70 year old grandfather) here. They also have a lot of fossils and artifacts, so you learn a lot, too! This place is... More

Outstanding place to take the kids 4-12 years old! We went when it was rainy for a few hours. Kids loved being there and didn't want to leave. Highly recommend this spot to anyone looking to burn a few hours.

My 7 year old son enjoyed visiting the Dinosaur store. It has many interesting items, including authentic dinosaur fossils. We felt we were in a museum. The workers are happy to answer any questions you may have. The adventure zone could use a makeover, but overall a nice place to visit to fill your day.

We never expected to see a dinosaur shop in Coco Beach, but my son is still young enough to get excited when we passed The Dinosaur Shop, Coco Beach and saw the huge life size T-Rex perched on the outside of the building. Once inside it was a fun hour strolling through rows of museum quality fossils, teeth and claws.... More

Neat store with way more fossils than I expected. Kids loved it. Didn't pay for the interactive part, just browsed. Definitely worth a visit.

My son LOVES dinosaurs, so I was delighted to find this shop in walking distance of the hotel we stayed at, had Egyptian items also. We went 15 minutes before closing, but did not feel rushed at all!

A fun place to consider purchasing fossils, meteorites, Old animal bones, whole skeleton, exotic woods, etc., etc. if you want to purchase fossils, be ready to pay! On the other hand, you can purchase mammoth hair and a small portion of its tusk for $17.
