Hands-on activities at Tyrannostorus are designed to educate and inspire. Unlike traditional museum settings, guests are encouraged to touch and handle materials. Children of all ages can experience the fun and adventure of excavating fossils at the store’s dig site and searching for gems and minerals in the sluice. Excavation kits range in price from $4.99-$39.99 depending on size and content. Some bags have gems and minerals while others have seashells, fossils, arrowheads, and more. A 25 pound kit can be purchased for $79.99. Uncovered treasures go home with customers in a special Tyrannostorus take home box. Adults are encouraged to take part in the activities with their kids. Everyone can wash hands at the clean up station afterward.
In addition to providing hands-on fun for the whole family, Tyrannostorus is dedicated to educating the community. Our FREE school visits include a wide variety of real and replica fossils, which our audience can touch and interact with. We have experience presenting in auditoriums or smaller classroom settings.
