Visit to The Dinosaur Store & Museum
What to do on a rainy day when you can't visit the beautiful beach? You go to The Dinosaur Store and Museum instead. Wow, what a treat this place was. We really didn't expect such a grand museum of dinosaurs and ancient artifacts.
The dinosaurs are life size and placed in their most likely habitats. There are ancient artifacts with signs explaining what you are looking at, science videos to watch and docents walking the floors to answer any of your questions.
We were there over 2 hours before we realized it! This a great educational outing for children. Today we were with a 4 year old and she was impressed.
After you tour the 2nd and 3rd floor of the museum you can visit the great store, with toys, books, puzzles, T-shirts, rocks and jewelry made from precious stones. We walked out with a sticker book, a great looking T-shirt for the 4 year old and a fun fridge magnet.
There is an interactive play/exhibit area that costs extra, but we didn't have the time to take a look. It sounded like fun though--the kids were laughing and running around.
Cost for the Museum of Dinosaurs & Ancient Cultures:
Senior 60+: $12.00
Child 3-11: $10.00
