I have never been into a store like this before. I was amazed by all of the artifacts within and spent over an hour trying to take in everything they have to offer. The jewelry is unique and interesting. A must see in SOHO

No other store like this, must see to believe. My kids were intrigued for over an hour. If you can't make it to the store in SOHO, go to their kiosk at FAO Schwarz.

I enjoyed walking through this small, but unique store. There are tons of species. I bought about 25 lollipops to take home for the neighbor hood children. $2-$4 each.

A friend recommended this stop and I could not get my science-obsessed 18 year old out of there! Prepare to be amazed if looking at actual human skeletons (including fetus and conjoined twins), preserved bugs and butterflies, stuffed deer heads and tiger rugs is your idea of a good time. On the tamer side they have beautiful geodes and ancient fossils, cool snake skeletons and all sorts of bones and related tchochkes (raccoon penis bone anyone?), LOTS of skull jewelry and unusual items like a $10 pair of earrings made of iridescent beetle wings. If you are into botanical prints, gorgeous posters from Germany.
