I visited My Clement in the late 60's. So glad to see such a wonderful collection so professionally displayed. I know My Clement would be proud of the museum and the thousands of visitors each year that come to see this museum.

This is a unique museum. It has several rooms of different types of minerals. My kids favorite was the fluorescent minerals room. It also has a gift shop. At certain times during the year they have mineral digs. In June they have a festival.
