  • My family of 4 had a very nice time visiting the Gem & Mineral museum. We were immediately greeted and offered a complimentary tour. They had way more gems, minerals, and rocks than we were expecting. The fact that the museum resides in an old jail makes it all that much more interesting. Overall the museum is wonderful, but what really makes it 5 stars are the kind and genuine people that work there. We will definitely return when traveling near Franklin again.
  • A gem of a museum, especially for free! The people who work here are super friendly and helpful. If you love rocks or fossils, stop by! There's a great selection of local and exotic gems.
