Fossil Dig & Gem Sluice

Fossil Dig

Attention Junior Paleontologists!  Came and dig your way through mounds of sand to uncover fossils or gemstones. After identifying your finds, choose the special one you wish to keep and take it home.


Gem Panning

Gem panning is another new, hands-on activity offered by the Museum for visitors of all ages. Participants purchase a large bag of sand containing hidden “gems,” which they recover by washing away the sand in water.

These activities are a favorite with parents and kids alike.
