Tyrannostorus in Mesa is nothing short of a dinosaur or gem lover’s dream come true! But honestly, anyone will find this new Mesa store fascinating and fun – there’s just so much to see and learn about!

What will you find inside? There are lifesize dinosaur head replicas, a large variety of dinosaur replicas, and relics too! You’ll see shells of all shapes and sizes, an impressive collection of minerals and gems, fossils, the largest geodes we’ve ever seen, and SO MUCH MORE. Just browse and be impressed at all the earth can offer.

 

 

The highlight is definitely the excavating station. Anyone is welcome to purchase a bag of dirt in various sizes and see what wonders await! You can get bags with gems, fossils, or arrowheads. Our 7 year old chose the Emerald Bag and found some real gems (no pun intended) that he now has displayed proudly on his dresser. There’s also a nice clean-up station and restrooms.

 

Another aspect of Tyrannostorus was the amazing employees that were so knowledgeable. No question was too small, from child or adult, and the facts just kept coming. Even if you don’t choose to excavate fossils or gems, just browsing is like a fun interactive experience – and it’s free!

Put Tyrannostorus in Mesa on your list to visit this weekend, or over spring break! They are open M-F 11am-7:30pm, Sat 11am-6pm, Sun 11am-5pm. It is free to browse and touch all the things! Various prices for items on sale. Excavation dirt ranges from $4.99-39.99.
