The brochures claim this is the biggest souvenir shop in Kentucky! We expected something much larger! Took less than 5 minutes to walk through the whole place. Lots of cheap options, nothing spectacular. The cashier was friendly enough.

My wife, an earth and space teacher was thrilled to find coprolite, fossilized dinosaur poop, to show her students. Great selection of both raw and polished minerals

This is your typical gitchy gift shop full of shot glasses and typical souvenirs. Lots of geodes and rocks. The staff seemed friendly enough and there are tons of options that say Kentucky on them. It's about what you should expect.

There's a great array of all kinds of rocks, geodes and glass. There's also a gift store and some kind of mystery house we did not enter. Staff in the gift shop was very friendly
