There are lots of nice gifts, t-shirts and other things to buy. But I have been coming here many years and it does seem like they had less items to choose from this time.

This is a great place to go to find any type of rock you can imagine - they also have fossils, statues, jewelry, all kinds of gifts. And they have a fossil skull of a mosasaurus - that large aquatic dinosaur in the Jurassic World...More

Great prices on rocks found outside, but inside was quite pricey. There were many unique rocks I hadn't seen prior. We did not do the quirky museum inside for $2 a person as this was a short side stop on way to the caves.
