Amazing. Our 9 year old grandson loved it. Said it is the place to go on his next visit. The staff was extremely helpful and friendly.

Thank you so much for your visit and review of the Crater Rock Museum. We are happy your grandson enjoyed his time here. I hope he visited our Rock Yard and Sluice and found some treasures he could take home. We look forward to your return visit as the displays change periodically.

We wanted to visit Crater Lake National Park and my adult son found this spot which we decided to visit first. There are many great displays and it’s very educational. We enjoyed the fossils and the glowing rocks. The staff was friendly and the gift shop and museum were very clean and nice. If you are in the area stop in.

The building is huge, room after room of world class rocks. The arrow heads in displays are exceptional. There are Dino bones and crystals like I have never seen. There is a display of scrimshaw on whale tooth. All of the work appears to be sailor-art and dates back to the 1800's. I understand that they update their displays regularly and will be adding a display of figures carved by the Eskimos of Alaska and the First Nation Peoples of Canada soon. We liked it so much, we paid for a membership. We will be back.

We had read zero reviews prior to just wandering in as we happened by. What a pleasant surprise. It was much larger than we anticipated and had an excellent collection of rocks, minerals, fossils, and a few miscellaneous Indian items or scrimshaw exhibits. One could easily spend a hour or two here.

We took my 4 year old grandson who loves rocks and he thoroughly enjoyed it. Soo much to see and something for everyone. He especially loved the fossils. Such beautiful displays and and great gift store where we purchased a few rocks to take home. We are planning a trip back with the rest of the family.
