  • Great experience for grade school age kids.
  • A fun place to visit. It is essentially a jewelry store with a small museum on site. But... They have a cool collection of gems (and a large asteroid) and its a fun and educational place to visit. I took my kids and they had plenty of fun checking out the displays!
