  • Probably the greatest shop on the island. No visit to the isle of Wight is complete without visiting jurassic Jim's. Don't spend your money in gift shops on silly little gems and things. Get yourself in here and buy real dinosaur bones, mammoth tusks, fossilised fish and much, much more. Fantastic shop, run by a fantastic chap. I really can't recommend the place highly enough 👍
  • Brilliant place with so many weird and wonderful things to find. Jurassic Jim is such a friendly guy and always has a story where the items came from. Me and my daughter have visited every holiday for the past 3 years (always buying something at great prices), she makes the request that we must visit, and I'm sure we'll be visiting again on our next trip to the IOW.
  • Great little shop,full of fossils, crystals and a like. Brilliantly priced too.
  • Jurassic Jim is fantastic! He is very knowledgeable and his enthusiasm is infectious. There is so much to choose from, among my purchases were 350m year old shark poo and some Tanzanite 😀 Jim is keen to help you find what you want and will also take orders online, Facebook etc and uses pay pal. Prices are really good, I think starting at about a pound. There's also a pocket money table and competitions to get children interested, you can pick up anything, as Jim says, it's ancient rock, you can't break it! Any visit to the Isle of Wight is incomplete without a trip to Jurassic Jim.
  • Kids loved this place. Jim is very knowledgeable and keeps the kids amused with his talks.
