Lots of minerals, geodes, and slag glass. I particularly liked the glass. A huge assortment of colors and shapes.

Went to Big Mike's and was frightened by the person in the shop whom spoke of end of days. Not a great sales pitch for selling goods. She also extolled the Virtue of lapis against the skin for safety? Again spooky and way out of my comfort zone. Goods are mostly not worth viewing and you would do better picking up rocks or broken glass at the rest area parking lot.
This was the center of and reason for my vacation. I tour America looking for hole in the wall tourist traps. The cost for two of us to tour the Mystery House was $2.12. This was the cheapest activity on the trip and by far the best. Also on this trip I zip lined through a cavern which was awesome but not near as fun as Big Mike's. This is not for everyone but if you like silly and tacky tourist pits that try to sell you overpriced rocks this is the place to go!
If your into rocks and gems then stop here. If not into rocks keep driving! The store located at the bottom of the parking lot contains all sorts of rocks and gems. Obviously the bigger they are the more expensive they are. The store located at the top contains your common thrift store items.
