We support your efforts to get the Mining and Mineral Museum reopened. Our memories are from the Fairgrounds location, and we treasured those wonderful collections. Arizona’s school children must have this incredible asset available to them once again.
As a teacher, I am heartbroken that the Arizona Mining and Mineral museum was shut down. This resource helped to supplement our children’s knowledge of the natural world at a time when the Earth Sciences are often overlooked in our schools. As a rock collector, I miss the beautiful collection, the opportunity to learn and … Continue reading A. M.

My wife and I loved our visits to the museum. and want to be able to share that experience with … Continue reading B. E.

We are so glad that progress is being made to reopen the museum. It was Nancy’s favorite field trip during her 40 years of teaching in Arizona public schools.
Why don’t we have a Show Of Support Day Fund Raiser for the Mineral Museum, U of A, other Museums who want to get on board, get the schools to support, the Public and Gold Prospecting Clubs to help out in the cost . And get this Museum open !
I fully support CAMMAZ.
Senator Griffin, representing Legislative District 14, deserves a big note of thanks for all the time and energy that she devoted towards the mineral museum restoration bills. Her determined efforts have created an opportunity to reopen a unique place for discovery and learning about the Earth sciences. Let’s rock and roll and make it happen!

I wear my Amethyst jewelry from the Four Peaks a lot. A … Continue reading L. R.
I can fully endorse the reopening of the Mining and Mineral Museum. As an educational resource it was one of the best in the state. It is clear the AHS is more interested in politics than the education and welfare of our children.
Let it be known this should be rectified and/or restored to the beautiful museum it was.
My father was Joe McIntosh. He was a geologist and after retirement, he was a longtime volunteer with the Mineral Museum. Following his death, my mom donated his extensive copper collection to the Flagg Foundation and it was on display at the museum. Harvey Jong did a wonderful job with the display. Now our family … Continue reading PH
Is it really going to happen after Dick Zimmerman¹s persistent efforts? Hope so
The Museum represented a truly positive scientific experience that was very informative as well as very friendly to all that visited. Unlike many other museums, the Arizona Mining and Mineral Museum was very informal, but still very professional. Sue and I took pride in being very available to visitors as well as being very scientifically … Continue reading S. C.
Let’s get behind this renewal of an important part of Arizona’s history and future!

I was present for several special tours with the Boy Scouts and home schoolers watching with delight the children and adults alike who were fascinated by the … Continue reading S. P.
