  • This place was amazing for my 3 year old dinosaur enthusiast! We spent probably around 3hrs here and he absolutely loved everything! Will definitely be going back. Another plus was the staff they...

  • Cute little rock and fossil shop. A collector may be a little disappointed by the quality of the materials available for purchase (particularly the vertebrate fossil replicas), but the outdoor...

  • This place has been my kid's favorite place for the last four years. We started going when they were 2 and 4, now they are 6 and 8 and STILL love it just as much. It's always the #1 thing on their summer bucket list. We've done mining (kids get hard helmets and a headlamp and go into a dark room to search for hidden gems), we've done the digging (kids get shovels and dig in a big sand pit to find treasure), we haven't done panning yet, but that's on their list. It's kind of unbelievable the amount of fun my kids have at this place. It's pretty small, there's a nice mulched outdoor area behind the shop with a cool dinosaur trail, but it's real draw is that it's IMAGINATION inspiring. So in my kids' minds, this place is massive, and magical. I absolutely love seeing their faces when they discover fossils, and unearth gems. This place gives me faith in humanity and the beautiful wonder of being a child. I think I love it as much as my kids do.
  • We had a birthday party here with kids ages 2-7, and they had a blast. Our rock hound son is thrilled about his goodie bag of gems, arrowheads, crystals, shark teeth, and more that he got to find on his own. The owners were wonderful and made everything seamless for us. What a wonderful little hidden gem!
