The 19th Annual Mineral Madness Event is a chance for everyone, from the novice to the serious collector, to learn something new about minerals and rocks…and to find new treasures for their collection.
There will be activities for families and children all around the museum grounds, including viewing micro-minerals, creating crystal origami, and learning about how animals and people use minerals.
