This is a quirky and weird place that seems to be one man's hobby. There is a small museum showcasing fossils and dinosaurs as well as the dinosaur footprints. The real focus seems to be the sale of fossils and minerals. Everything is cash only...More

If you love fossils, this is your place. The dinosaur tracks are nice and only a 100 foot walk from the parking. You can purchase fossils, including tracks from the site, at very reasonable prices. Also, the price of admission is only $3 per person,...More

This place is a throwback that time has passed by. It plays on peoples' fascination with dinosaurs and inevitably leaves them disappointed. There are better dinosaur track sites within a half hour drive such as on Route 5 in Holyoke.

The town of Granby is well know for the dinosaur tracks. This little museum and gift shop was founded in the later 50s by the Nash family and they still operate it. Lots to see. The museum is built on the quarry.

Kornell Nash, the son of the founder, is wonderfully knowledgeable about the geology of this region and also about local history. He answered all our questions; it was a pleasure talking to him. The quarry is fascinating--bits of fossilized wood and, yes, dinosaur tracks right...More

This is an authentic Dinosaur track attraction. Inside this store you can view and purchase some nice tracks and fossils. In the back you can see the tracks still in their original spot,. Great place to bring a fossil enthusiast.

This place looks a little rough from the outside, but the owner is a living encyclopedia of dinosaurs in Massachusetts. For a mere $3, he will tell you the story of what used to roam these lands and what you might see. The quarry is...More
