Terrific Museum
Aug 2021 • Friends
I am not a rock and mineral person, although my daughter certainly is. We both thoroughly enjoyed this museum, which is on the Michigan Tech campus. It is extremely well curated, allowing a novice like me to gain useful insights. My daughter was simply mesmerized.

One tip: Be sure to check out the outdoor exhibits and garden.

World-Class Institution

This is really an exceptional collection to visit for anyone even remotely interested in minerals, crystals, earth history, or even just exquisitely colorful objets d'art. Utterly professional, sensibly arranged, well lit, clearly labeled. The Smithsonian or Field Museum do it no better! A well stocked gift shop with truly unique offerings.

Always wonderful!

I was here last year and loved this little museum that takes far longer to enjoy than you would expect! I brought my family and we all spent 1 1/2 hours here, completely amazed by each display. We were astonished to learn that many of these incredible rocks, minerals are found as seen in the display cast, only slightly cleaned up...not everything is super polished for display, it comes that way! The array of colors, shapes and history was amazing! Even though I'd been before, this second visit was even better than the first! Very nice and helpful staff, clean bathrooms and an extensive gift shop! Lots of parking; be sure to visit the lovely little garden. No food or café. Discounts for seniors. Highly recommended!

Always fun! This museum contains multiple cabinets of curiosities! We love the fluorescent room! The local copper and other mineral representations were extremely informative- so much to learn here!!
Great for a very hot or a rainy day!

Rude workers
Oct 2020 • Family
More training for being tactful.
The staff was so rude we didnt even take the tour of the mueseum. The gift shop is well stocked. But the girls working there that day were very rude. They missed out on 8 paid admissions. Oh and they were talking amongst themselves like customers were an Inconvenience.

This museum holds an amazing amount of incredible minerals. Very impressive displays that are well-organized and labeled. Good explanations of the science. Beautiful minerals from all over the world. Amazing quantity. Really nice first store with a lot of selection and interesting items. This is a must-see if you're in the area.

Amazing Displays
Sep 2020 • Couples
Very well done display of minerals & gems. From the introduction to how minerals were formed to the display of how we use them today, this museum has done a great job of presenting the science of minerals.
