Ten quirky, unique stores where families can find everything from exotic insects to old-fashioned rubber stamps. For Curious Adventurers Skip the museum and creep up your day at The Evolution Store, where those with a taste for adventure can get a glimpse of prehistoric specimens and exotic insects. Channel the likes of Indiana Jones and Allan Quatermain as you trek through this enthralling treasure trove of obscurities; no need for spelunking when you can head straight for their wide array of minerals-crystal, agate, and more. Take home a mammoth hair sample or a scorpion lollipop-or fall in love with a taxidermied friend. Surely not for the faint of heart, this shop is full of curiosities that will incite "oohs" and "aahs" galore, and may introduce you to creatures and artifacts you never knew existed. Adventure awaits at this truly astonishing SoHo store. 120 Spring Street,[theevolutionstore.com](http://www.theevolutionstore.com/) To read the full list, please visit [newyorkfamily.com](http://www.newyorkfamily.com/unusual-shops-for-families-in-new-york-city/).
