Bob Campbell Geology Museum

Visit the Geology Museum to see an extensive collection of 10,000 rocks, minerals, lapidary objects, and artifacts. See beautiful mineral clusters and sparkling gemstones. Marvel as fossilized plants and animals that were buried in layers of rock long ago. Don't miss the iron meteorites and minerals that glow in the dark. Stroll through the courtyard garden with its mix of unusual plants, rocks and mining equipment. Get up close and personal with the samples on the touchable table. Guided tours for school groups are available. Scouts can take part in activities to earn badges, such as creating an impression in clay with a real fossil.
