Lots of geology and pre-historical exhibits, artwork and displays. Great collection of fossils, rocks and gems including flourescent rocks. Tour guides are local geologists and very knowledgeable.

I absolutely LOVED visiting this museum! We just happened by it and ended up staying for about an hour and a half. We couldn't get enough, it was probably longer. The museum part of the center wasn't even open yet and the lady at the desk got right up and opened it for us. She was nice and informative. The place itself was neat and clean, very well taken care of. They do not charge for this museum, instead leaving a donation box. We left $25 we loved it so much! I highly recommend this museum!

This is in an old school, now a rec. center. Ask at the front desk to see the museum and the clerk will unlock the hall and 4 rooms of the collections. One room focuses on Box Elder County mining only, but the other rooms have rocks, minerals, and fossils or their copies from around the world.
Geologists and rock hounds would love this well-labeled collection.
