We will be closed Monday, September 21st for LED lighting rennovations.

Our Mineral Museum and Bookstore have opened in a limited capacity and will observe COVID-safe practices for the health of our visitors and workers. Groups will be limited to 10 persons in the museum and 3 in the bookstore. All mineral identification requests should be made by appointment to museum staff, drop in requests are discouraged. We will return to normal business hours, 9 - 5 Monday through Friday and 10 - 3 on non-holiday weekends. Due to COVID-19, our other facilities are currently closed to the public, and will reopen as soon as permitted by state and university policy. Our staff can be reached via email or by phone.

We are closely following the recommendations of New Mexico Governor Lujan-Grisham during the COVID-19 crisis, so we may have to make further adjustments regarding public access opportunities as circumstances change.
