We stopped thinking this was just a shop, but we were very wrong! There is also two floors of a non-profit museum here too. Great exhibits on dinosaurs and ancient civilizations. We thoroughly enjoyed our visit and we enjoyed shopping in the store as well.

I passed by earlier in the week and everything seemed normal. In addition, the parking lot was full. Week before last, I did read they were making some changes/upgrades (Florida Today). Will check further.
