Not glamorous, but for rock-hounds like me, it was an appealing stop during a campus visit. I expected it would focus solely on minerals found in NM, but it was global and also included some flourescent ones from nearby me: Franklin, NJ.

If you are already on campus to view other museums (Art Museum or the Maxwell Museum), then you may want to swing by. The "museum" is housed in a classroom and is in desperate need of a makeover.
