Good place to get peruse and get out of the heat or rain. Lots of neat fossils to look at and even some real ones you can buys (though very expensive, of course)! Fun place to take your time walking through whether you're an adult or a kid. The Adventure Zone part of it is good for kids, though a... More

Lots of interesting bits and pieces. Mostly a shop/store but has a play place (you need to pay for tickets to get into this part of the attraction) mainly for a younger group of children and early teens perhaps. However the fossils and other items are very neat to look through. Even had a chance to purchase chocolate covered ants...what... More

This was a wonderful stop on our vacation in Cocoa Beach! The exhibits were absolutely mind blowing! Loved the store and what it had to offer as most of the items are genuine and ancient! It was quiet and the workers very friendly! Would recommend this store to anyone who visits Cocoa Beach!

This is a great place to stop for untraditional souvenirs. Many fossils, dinosaur bones, interesting jewelry. Did not do the adventure Zone as we did not have children with us.

Fun little store for everyone! Lots of things to look at and enjoy! The store had a mixture of authentic and make believe, so you really had to watch what you were getting. The salt lamps are awesome! Check out was a little slow at first, but it did pick up at the end.

We met up with some family that lives in Florida before we went on a cruise, and this is one thing we did in a fairly short amount of time had to spend with them. My 5yr old son and 3 yr old daughter were really amused while we were there. I liked the fact that they could play all... More
