The window display is pure eye candy; the geodes, shells, fossils, and related items only hint at what is inside. The quality and selection is hard to equal elsewhere. The store owner will take all the time you need to answer questions, make recommendations, and...More

We stopped at Dinosaur Gallery during a business trip and found quite a few neat shops with unique gift items and specialty goods. The menswear stores are especially nice. I bought a few gifts and did a lot of window shopping.

The Dinosaur Gallery is the most wonderful shop for anyone like me who is fascinated with nature's most beautiful treasures. It is a gem and mineral (and fossil) treasure chest, loaded with beautiful crystals, amethysts, geodes, opals, amber (with things imbedded), fossils of all kinds....More
