I have never been inside a mineral shop this big before. There are HUGE crystals, every kind of mineral from around the world, fossils, and gem stones. If you are into gems and minerals, this is the place for you... impressive is an understatement !!!!

On our recent family trip to the Redwoods we stopped at Chapman's and were very pleasantly surprised. The shop itself is huge with many interesting gem and fossil specimens for sale. Our 11 year old son is a beginning Rock Hound and he loved the place. The staff is very friendly and knowledgeable and great with kids. The museum has many interesting displays from all around the world again of gems and fossils. If you are traveling along 101 near Eureka and want a quick stop to see some interesting exhibits or buy some gems or fossils, do stop by Chapman's...it is right along 101, can't miss it.

Looked like a good museum but we didn't have time to take it. My husband is a Geologist and enjoyed this place.

Very unassuming place. I think the prices are comparable to any to I shop. I was on the cusp of buying so many specimens despite not having the money in my situation right now. Some of the specimens are quite impressive. Everything inside is well marked in terms of pricing. A little disappointed to see there was no haggling with pricing - they are pretty set on that. Still, it was definitely worth the stop.
