No complaints about the shop. It is a typical touristy souvenir shop. I was hoping for more unique rocks at the rock shop. But there were an awful lot of the touristy carved stone animals and dyed geodes, that sort of thing. Dont get me...More

Many eclectic things to be found and a lot of fun. Kids will love it and make sure you ask about the weird house tour!! It's only a dollar and it's well worth the price of admission!! Kudos!!!
