Fascinating place to visit and shop for all sorts of interesting rocks and fossils and wonderful gifts that are different at very reasonable prices. The staff was very friendly and helpful.

My daughter and I went on an impromptu trip. The staff member (owner?) was really knowledgeable and kind to my daughter. We did 3 activities and she walked away with a LOT of beautiful stones. It was a great memory we will treasure!

We stopped on our way home after Magic Wings and had a great time. There were 3 different activities that my 7 & 9 year olds loved. Will be back next time!
