This museum highlights varius rocks and minerals of the area. Many of the examples are very large includin a 6' geode. It was interesting, but without a geoligist to put in context, it was just a set of pretty rocks. Several Stetson students were there, and were engrossed in taking notes. For me it was less than intriguing.

Learn about rocks & fossils. Super cool little museum. Spend a rainy afternoon and learn a lot! And while you are there throw a dollar in the tip jar to keep it going.

The Minerals in this are more than rocks, they represent many of what we call gem stones and where they are found in our earths crust. It is a self guided tour, students staff the museum so questions may or may not be answered but a great way to pass an afternoon.

Tucked away on the back edge of the Stetson University Campus, it's a gem. (Punny, but true) A great collection, student guides on hand, and a variety of hands on items. On site is a small but fun museum store.
