  • It had been 45 years since i had visited. Spent 30 minutes walking around. Has a mineral "store" and a free mineral museum. Well worth the stop.  more »
  • Chapman's has beautiful rocks and gems. The museum, in the back, is worth the stop --by itself. Museum quality specimens are worth the visit. If you enjoy beauty in nature, you need to stop at Chapman...  more »

  • Really cool place to visit! They have everything you could want when it comes to crystals and fossils--I need to save up for one of the massive chunks of rose quartz they have outside. They also sell a ton of beautiful jewelry at very reasonable prices as well as supplies for you to get started with your own stone tumbling. The museum is really cool too! I didn't know there were so many kinds of agate. I like the section that labels which states some stones are native to. Super neat!
  • Chapman's Gem and Mineral store and Museum is totally awesome! The place was huge and they have tons of different rocks in all price ranges. And I felt that the prices we're pretty decent for the products that they had, which was a lot of stuff! They also had a really nice museum in the back with tons of displays and you could probably spend an entire day just looking at all that stuff. Inside the museum they also had a full size Terracotta Warrior, which was really cool! This has to be the best rock shop and mineral Museum in the area by far, totally worth stopping in and and seeing all the different rocks!
  • If you are into rock collecting or geology this place is truly amazing and you really need to stop in. One of the best 'rock shops' I've ever been in. The stone and wood based artwork is incredible! I could spend hours here and could easily spend $$$ here. From small inexpensive pieces to huge. The museum and art gallery is amazing too. Well worth the stop.
  • Very interesting place. Wishing we had more time to look at everything. Just wish they had more jewelry already done. I did find a beautiful piece and need to get a stone set.
  • Incredible store, and gallery, and museum!! Such beautiful rocks. It took me forever to decide what i was taking home. Polished, carved, and rough natural stones. But that museum was definitely my favorite. Amethyst stalactites! Geode book ends! Ah!
