We are a 501c3 organization, supported by donations from visitors and friends.

Mission: To enlighten the public about our earth’s treasures by displaying rocks, minerals, fossils and gems from around the world.

The show is open 10-5 today. The Jacksonville club did a great job with the children's area, and children under 12 are admitted free. It's a great way to spend a Sunday afternoon.
