Wonderful museum for all ages. I was quite impressed by the size of it. When I first heard about this museum a few weeks back, I pictured it as small and thought, "How many rocks could there really be?" At the same time, I was intrigued to find out that there was a room you could turn the lights out in to see various rocks/minerals glowing in the dark. I knew my 3- and 1-year-old boys would be completely into that! They, of course, loved it! We were only there an hour (due to the young ages of our 2 sons) but I am definately going to be returning multiple times! You could spend months in there and still find "new" things you never noticed before! Awesome place to go! Makes me wish I knew more about geology! The staff was telling us that the museum will be moving to a main floor building in the future, which will make it a lot easier to find and get to (it is currently on a 5th floor of a building in the middle of campus). Well worth the trip. Free admission, but donation are accepted!

PROS: All ages, "free" (by donation), always something new
CONS: current location
