  • Wonderful display outside with MANY large specimens of many different types of rocks. A very interesting display of glow in the dark minerals! Well worth the stop!
  • Amazing stop, do it! I wished I could have stayed longer but I had to keep moving. So glad I stopped and I could have bought way more. Totally worth the little bit of money they ask for the tour. Something for everyone! Thank you.
  • Classic I 90 Roadside attraction. A little sweaty but still has the golden age charm.
  • This was the first stop on our family vaca to South Dakota. I had no idea what to expect when we started the tour. I will admit I was a little disappointed when I first entered the gardens, but I quickly realized this was exactly the type of little off-the-wall attraction that an out west family road trip needs. It is pretty much as fun as you want to make it. We really enjoyed picking a chunk of rose quartz from their rock pile for a souvenir. They sell all kinds of local rocks and minerals for $3 per pound. The gift shop was huge and really nice. Definitely stop here! Just don't expect Disney land for $20.....
  • A fun roadside attraction perfect for your trip out west. We enjoyed buying some rose quartz for $3/lb.
