The Crater Rock Museum’s mission is to educate people of all ages through the study of earth sciences, geology, lapidary, mineralogy, natural history and paleontology by conducting tours, teaching classes, and maintaining museum displays. We encourage local schools to bring their classes to the museum, to participate in our guided tours. We work closely with the schools and their teacher's to aid with curriculum.
When you visit the museum, you’ll agree - the Crater Rock Museum houses the finest displays of rocks, minerals and gems on the West Coast! We exhibit a large collection of rocks and minerals from around the world, including fossils, petrified wood, Native American artifacts, a mid-1800's scrimshaw collection, a collection of glass work by Dale Chihuli and his students, a wonderful collection of shells, and MUCH, MUCH MORE! The original 5,400 square foot museum is now more than 12,000 square feet, housing community meeting rooms, a larger gift shop, workshop, and exhibit areas!
