Guess our expectations were too high but this ‘museum’ is pathetically outdated, and not worth climbing the staircase to visit

Small, but mighty (they even have a mummy)

It's a climb to the second floor, but it's worth it. So many unexpected finds!

They have beautiful and fascinating samples of all kinds of minerals and fossils, local and from farther afield. The cases are not large, but they are well-labeled and have very interesting specimens. There's a whole case of different minerals (rocks) just from NJ and they show you how these things were mined locally, which I don't think you think of when you think of the Garden State. There's a small room in the back where they fluoresce rocks. There are mastodon tusks and dinosaur tracks. And, yes, there's a mummy! There are some interesting things in the upper balcony, too, so worth checking out.

The college work study students were super nice to my 9-year-old nephew. They have a scavenger hunt (different versions for different ages) and when he finished it, he was rewarded with a cool prize--a piece of pyrite.
