Treasures of the Earth reviews
Went here with 2 young kids, really interesting museum. Lots of great fossils as well as gems, etc. The gift shop is good too. Worth a visit more »

Not nearly as big as I thought from the advertising. Lots of crystals and replica fossils but presented in an unimaginative way. Shop was good though.
