I went as a really young child with my family and it was one of my favorite places we went to. I found a cool pencil with rocks in it and wanted to write a review cause it was one of my favorite memories and was a really fun time. really cool

Great museum
Feb 2020 • Friends
My expectations were exceeded in this museum. There is a very nice display of Chinese pieces made with different types of stone such as jade. I would say younger children might not like it except for the dioramas.
The $10 admission fee is also a good value. And the people working there were all very nice and informative.
Definitely worth a visit.

Stunning

In this larger space, the displays are gorgeous. Take your time, read the detailed explanations, and pay attention to the fine detailed work. Its simply exquisite, imagine doing this work so many years ago, without the use of power tools. What many of us would think is “just a rock” is transformed by artists into the most beautiful objects.

Great museum, has been in Elmhurst for probably 75 yrs. Great exhibit and nice friendly people. If you like unique stone carvings and unusual gem stones, this is the place for you!

This unique museum has closed in Elmhurst and is moving
to nearby Oak Brook. I am not sure when they will be reopening
but hope to visit their new facility.

Make sure you come to this museum before it moves to Oak Brook. The collection is absolutely amazing and worth going to see before they move locations.

This items in this museum were originally from the private collection of Mr. Lizzadro. Thank heaven he decided to share this with the public. This place is more than just rocks. There are dioramas made from stone that are just beautiful. I especially like the one with the buffaloes. They also offer classes here. If you're ever in the area, it's definitely worth a visit.

Very interesting

Friday’s are free! The collection is very interesting. A little more detail on each piece would have been great. The staff was friendly and helpful. We didn’t stay to watch the movie because the sound of grinding stone is...ugh! The information on the lower level along with the samples stones were a great touch (pun intended).
