Sorry for the pun, but you should really check it out. Who knew rocks could have such color, variety, and artistic potential? If you are like me you never heard of such a place. But you should. This was a visit into serendipity. Look it up.

We went to see a small greenhouse near this and came across this museum. The cost was very reasonable and both my daughters and I enjoyed the afternoon viewing the ehibits.

This was my favorite place to take my fourth grade class for a field trip. The woman who speaks to the children is fabulous! and very knowledgable. They even provide a scavenger hunt sheet for the kids. Beautiful stones and gems. The gift shop is awesome. Lots of reasonably priced items for kids.

The Lizzadro is a small museum that is loaded with beautiful pieces of art totally out of stone. The mosaics and dioramas constructed from different colors of stones are amazing in the detail and colors. The beautiful pieces of jade are incredibly detailed in their carvings. Even if you are not a rock collector the museum is well worth a visit. For those who enjoy rocks and minerals there is an area to explore with amazing specimens. The museum isn't large but it is a great place to go when you have just a little bit of time. There is a great little gift shop with unique items, of course out of stone.

Incredible exhibits of precious and semi-precious stones, and some of the most mind blowing carved jade you'll see anywhere.
