Excavate fossils directly from a matrix rock, create a shark tooth necklace, build a dinosaur model, crack open crystal filled geodes and find amber and Herkimer diamonds.

Children will see and touch a prehistoric, life-size T-Rex skull, 9 foot leg of an ice age mammoth, real dinosaur eggs, footprints and teeth, amethyst towers and more.
