  • The gardens were beautiful very friendly staff and you have an opportunity to buy petrified wood and other gems on your way out highly recommend stopping by for a visit
  • Neat to see, I don't know if it is worth the admission cost for the petrified wood itself, the more interesting part is the different colored gems under blacklight at the start
  • Small but interesting place. Worth the entrance fee.
  • Great place, wonderful veiw, and a person gets to be kid a kid.
  • First things first, this place tries to fit earth's history into 6000 years. They have a massive sign explaining the biblical timeline. At a geologic museum, their information is completely wrong. That being said, if you can look past that, the collections of rock were plentiful and some very large and beautiful. The gift shop was a little pricey, same with admission.
