About
Prehistoric Fossils is a family friendly Natural History Store with the largest selection of fossils and dinosaurs in the entire Branson area! We are frequently mistaken as a Museum, however we are not a Museum and nowhere do we claim to be a museum. But while we are technically NOT a museum we do provide plenty of descriptions and educational information on most of our fossils and displays throughout the store for those who are interested in educating themselves and learning about what they are looking at. While some of the prices on some of our fossils may seem "high" one must take into account the rarity and quality of the specimens we offer. Each and every specimen is hand picked and comes from reputable sources from all over the world. We have fossils available for any level of collector from beginner to advanced and at any price point from a couple of dollars to a couple thousand dollars. We also offer the largest variety of Dinosaur and Prehistoric Animal related toys, games, puzzles and educational items for kids that you will find anywhere in the state!! Come by and have a look.. you will not be disappointed! Guaranteed to please the young folks and the young at heart older folks. We are a family ran business and look forward to adding you to our extended family.. see you soon!

If you have a dinosaur fan in your group, this is a must! Even if you don’t, it’s an interesting place to walk through. They’ve got everything from inexpensive toys to real Dino fossils that are pretty pricey. It’s a cool place to walk through!

My favorite part was the variety of different types of rocks. I have visited the store several times over the last couple years. This time I bought rocks that glow in the dark. They are awesome. My grandchildren who are age 4 and 5 collect rocks and they absolutely love these rocks. . I have bought several other different types of rocks there in the past. They have fossils and other items that are fascinating. Highly recommend visiting this store.

Fun place to visit! Lots of fossils and artifacts! My son is a huge dinosaur fan. He was able to purchase a Mosasaurus tooth at a reasonably price. He loves his fossil!

Very wide variety of items for sale - high-quality art, low-dollar toys, gemstones, tons of stuff! It's a lot of stuff in a small space, so if you bring little kids, you'll want to watch them closely.

The entire store is absolutely incredible!!! We were on our last day of our vacation and I wish we would have stopped by sooner so we could have purchased more! Haha. Everything in there is so beautiful and interesting to say the least! Merv and his wife were so sweet and helpful! Absolutely will be coming back again next year!

Took our 4 kids. 1 of which is the biggest dinosaur fan right now. He was in heaven and I found him tons of Christmas presents. But everyone really enjoyed the store! So much to look at! There was kid stuff, adult stuff, fun stuff, serious stuff. All price ranges. The real stuff was pretty expensive of course. It was just a really cool place to go! They had lots of stuff other than dino stuff too. Lots of rocks, insects, professionally mounted items, crystals, etc. Staff was really friendly and helpful. We will go again our next trip!

I have lived in the area my whole life and had never been to this place until today, let me tell you, if you love fossils, crystals and gems, this place is amazing! The owners are absolutely amazing! I was down in Branson with my son today for his 18th bday and we are both rock nuts so this was perfect! We did 2 large geodes and the first one my son did, wasn't really big on the inside so he got to pick another one that ended up being gorgeous! He also got to pick a free fossil for his birthday! We will definitely be back!

Awe.. thank you so much! It was a pleasure meeting both of you... you BOTH got pretty Geodes if I recall correctly! Be sure to stop in every once in awhile.. I try to put NEW stuff out throughout the year so it's never exactly the same each visit.. Stay safe!
