I stopped by here on the spur of the moment while passing through. Great place. The owner, Mike, really knows his stuff and is very friendly. He obviously has a passion for dinosaurs, and geology too.

You can photograph all you want. He'll take your photo with your head in the T-Rex skull.

He has some nice casts of dinosaur skuls and some skeletons scaled down to a smaller size. Also a very nice collection of dinosaur figures. It may not be the huge museum collection they have in San Francisco, but it makes up for that with the price ($3.) and the fun education you get from the owner. Very kid friendly. There is also a nice collection of rocks and minerals and a reasonably priced rock shop too.
