  • Free two-floor unique, rich, compact display of geology - moon rocks, meteor remnants, state and national mineral and gems displays, fossils, maps, you name it. Found this searching Google Maps after skiing farther west for a few days, a huge win on your way back from the mountains. Did the scavenger hunt with the kids to guide us through the displays. Daniel, the guy on staff, checked our answers for the scavenger hunt, and then our kids got to pick a mineral from the basket which they took to show-and-tell the next week when we returned to school. We were here a good two hours with our 7 and 9 year old.
  • A wonderful little gem. If you're into gemstones and rock hunting this is a must. It's small but full of information and history. A great place to visit. Admission is free and a place to bring the kids.
