  • The lady in the counter is very helpful and love her job. The museum has a huge variety of minerals, there is a 15 min movie explaining how the minerals and crystal formed inside the earth in a very easy way. Worth a visit
  • I brought my 2 children in last Wednesday, and it was really interesting. Lots to see and very educational. The gentleman at the desk was incredibly knowledgeable and helpful and took lots of time talking to my son and giving him ideas and print outs on how to make one of the minerals. He also pointed out some places to go where you could find some of these rocks/ minerals. We went to one of these old mines and the kids spent ages finding different items of interest. My son really wanted to go back to the museum and show the gentleman his findings to find out what they were, but we ran out of time. 5/5 stars. Thank you so much!!
