Most everything manmade has something to do with mining. At the Sterling Hill Mining Museum the'll show you just how it's done. From drilling and blasting to the processing of the ore. Right here in NJ is one of the worlds richest zinc ore

We have gone here for years with class trios. Great guides that take you on a tour of the mine itself and lots to see in the little museum nearby. An outdoor area for picnics.
