Our Grands always want to go here when they visit. North Carolina has a wider variety of minerals than any other state and I think the Museum must have a sample of they all. Various stones are available to purchase but the star attraction is the geode cracking station.

We stopped by. While in town on business. Everyone was hands on and super informative. I love the energy and thought process behind the display peices. The whole museum is interactive. I especially loved the black light room! Sooooo cool!

Saw reviews & decided to stop in. Great find! Start with a short audio presentation of fluorescent rocks in a glass case - amazing. A lot of displays of geodes, rocks, minerals and gems. Some shark teeth & dinosaur bones, too. A nice tiny gift shop that includes jewelry, made

Stopped in with friends during the Apple festival. It was busy. They had a nice display of what people found locally and throughout. They were breaking geodes so every time they broke one they announced it for everyone to come see which was nice.
