The California Cavern gift shop and visitors center offers lots of fun, interesting and educational merchandise for adults and children. Choose from rocks, fossils, games, puzzles and books and Gold Rush history items. You can also purchase an unopened geode, and crack it right here at the shop where you will be the first person to see what crystals it contains that have developed over hundreds of thousands of years. Here, you can also see the real fossilized cave bear skeleton – showing the kinds of animals that would have lived here millennia ago.
While you’re here, check out the cavern walk tours and expeditions.
