Visit the Mineral Museum to find your favorite minerals and your birthstone, and climb a rock wall in our Exploring Sky Islands exhibit. Bring a few dollars and we can even spend some time seeing what the Science Store has for you to bring home. We’ll provide the snacks, please pack a lunch that doesn’t need refrigeration.
