Dig into the rockin’ world of minerals with fun hands-on activities for families. Shop for your own mineral and fossil treasures at rock-bottom prices! Thousands of mineral specimens for sale for the novice to the serious collector. The sale features Arizona and Mexico minerals with a selection of minerals and fossils from around the world as well. Bargain hunters will find specimens for as little as 50 cents!
The Museum’s Junior Docents will run geology activity stations, where you can learn about mineral uses and special properties, make mineral crafts, and learn how to identify minerals. At each station, children can collect a free rock or mineral specimen in their own egg-carton collection box.
