The employees at the rock shop were very nice to me. They respected my wishes. I also love a lot of the amazing rocks and gems they have. The dinosaur exhibit was very interesting. I loved the triceratops, the duck-billed dinosaur, and the woolly mammoth! Those are my favorites. It was great.

There is a museum on the lower floor, which is only accessible by stairs. The parking is metered street parking only.

I have been there many times. They have one step going into the shop. But they have always had portable ramps. It was difficult for awhile to notify them that I was there needing the ramp. I would need to find someone to tell them that I was waiting or knock on their window. But now they have a Big Bell. And I am able to press the button and it notifies them inside that I need the ramp. They are very friendly and accomodating. The only thing I might change is the fact that their museum in the basement is not accessible. But that's a minor thing.

This is near my house, and I go in quite often. I've seen the people who work there be attentive, caring and respectful to those in need, whether they have a disability or not. There are many people in the area that have a disability of some kind or another [there is a home nearby] and they are all greeted with a genuine smile. I guess what I'm saying is that, when I have been at Dave's Rock Shop, I've seen them uphold an equal respect, even if someone does have crazy face paint on.

They have a wheelchair ramp, if needed.

I really enjoy being there. They have a step into the shop and have a ramp, which is very helpful. But the ramp is a temporary one and they ask for people to knock for the ramp, but there is no way to knock, unless an able-bodied person can walk up the step and knock on the door for me. I would recommend that they get a big bell and install it near the window so it is easier to let them know that I need the ramp
