  • This is an interesting museum suitable for the whole family and a great treat for kids too. A real learning experience about phosphate mining and the town of mulberry. Great exhibits featuring videos and fossil artifacts. Kids can even dig into a huge mound of gravel to search for fossils, sharks teeth and more. Plan about an hour to visit and best of all there is no fee to tour (donation is appreciated). Welll worth the visit.
  • This place is small but worth a stop if you're in the area. Built out of traincars, there is a section of the museum that tells of the area of the area and the phosphate industry. Inside the gift shop, they have dinosaur fossils and casts including some that Mosaic have found while digging. Outside, you can dig in the dirt pile they have there to find your own fossils including bones and shark teeth. All of this is free too! If you decide to buy something form the gift shop or leave a donation, be aware that they only take cash.
  • Small but full of information. Most of us don not realize how much phosphates are in our lives. We all run into them everyday
  • My kids love looking for shark teeth and the museum inside is really nice to.
  • Cute and interesting maybe 20 to 30 minute visit.
