Excellent tour! Informative, entertaining and very interesting. Anyone who appreciates turquoise will enjoy it. I was fascinated by the wealth of knowledge. It was well worth the trip!
Purchased discounted tickets on groupon and went with a friend...Tour/Museum hours are EXTREMELY limited, so call ahead or check out website. Museum is family owned/ operated and has been so for several generations...informative and interesting.
We thought it was very informative. Family owned and the son gave us a great tour with a lot of character. We had no idea there was so much to know about turquoise. Definitely a place to visit BEFORE you buy something in the historical old town plaza. This place is hard to find and it is located in a shopping center by a Walgreens. Its also not in a cave like the AAA guide book states. Still a great place to visit.
Great history of Turquoise! Locations of different mines in the Southwest. Grades of Turquoise! How Turquoise changes with use and care. Great hands on exhibits. I would recommend this museum to all interested in Turquoise.
