The Mineral Museum boasts an amazing trip through the natural wonders of the world! The collection consists of crystals growing inside rocks, perfect cubes of pyrite formed inside the earth, a rattlesnake fossil, an authentic seven-foot Narwhal Tusk an extensive collection of dinosaur fossils and a meteorite.

Each piece has a story....like the enhydro that has million year old water trapped inside it! Or the giant 3 foot by 6 foot sandstone slab from Utah that looks like a brilliant sunrise on Jupiter. These geological wonders come from as far away as Russia, Peru, South America, and the Northwest Territories and even Space.

This collection is one of the foremost mineral displays in all of Canada, and best of all, it’s free to look at. It’s an exciting trip through the Earth’s treasures.
