We are proud to be a frequent field trip destination for students all across Oregon and Southern Washington. Special group programs are designed to both educate and excite young minds about minerals and earth science. From kindergarten to college-level, there's so much to learn about the rocks, minerals and fossils; what they are, how they form, their economic uses, and their extraordinary natural beauty.

Have a group of 31 or more? Guided tours are available upon request. In most cases, group tours are scheduled outside our normal business hours. Museum hosts will share interesting facts about the museum, its history and the many galleries, exhibits, and specimens. Our mission is to provide a FUN experience that is so engaging and educational you'll want to come back again and again.

Students and adults alike will learn from verbal instruction, brief video presentation, exciting visual exhibits, and hands-on fun! Your group will have opportunities to SEE ROCKS THAT GLOW, TOUCH FOSSILS AND METEORITES, HEAR A PETRIFIED LOG "TALK", and so much more!

To schedule, please contact the Museum. Date and times are subject to availability.
