A very nice place to take young ones. Plenty to do for 2-3 hours. Can add the ride, too. There is a little wildlife area with cages or statue type animals. My grandchildren had quite an adventure to talk about.

There were just a few toys, but I don't recall any particular ones. They sell authentic fossils, bones, skeletons, teeth and a few reproductions. You might check their web site.
