Mineral Madness Members' Preview

The annual Mineral Madness event at the Desert Museum 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. Activities during the weekend include a mineral sale with thousands of specimens, ranging in price from 50 cents to hundreds of dollars. It is a great place to start a collection, with expert staff and docents to guide you. In addition, there will be activities for families and children all around the museum grounds, including viewing micro-minerals, mineral arts and crafts and learning about how animals and people use minerals. At each station, children can collect a free rock or mineral specimen in their own egg-carton collection box. Children should bring an egg-carton if possible.
