  • It was a fun little place to stop by. Very interesting and they had a fun scavenger hunt for kids.
  • Very cool and it's free. Could spend all day there if you really like rocks, gems, minerals. After a while they all started to look the same. I wish it was more educational. Maybe more information on how these are mined, how they are formed naturally, how they can be made artificially, and how you can pick up mining as a hobby. We thought it would be cool to find these in nature on your own, but don't know how to do it. I don't know if there are any guided tours. Would be with it if there was.
  • Free and an excellent array of samples from all over the world. Also, very educational about local geology.
  • FREE!!!! Very nice museum with excellent specimens from around the world. Gift shop sells gems/stones really cheap!
  • Very interesting displays of rock crystals. Good docents. No admission fee.
