Facility:The Mineral Museum
Description:The Mineral Museum, situated on the Montana Tech Campus, overlooks the 100-year Butte Mining District, better know as the Richest Hill on Earth. Classic mineral specimens from Butte's underground mines which include over 3,000 miles of mine-workings that reach over a mile deep, illustrate the area's tremendous mineral wealth. Children and adults love the Fluorescent Room, where ordinary-looking minerals radiate extraordinary vibrant shades of pink, orange, and blue when exposed to ultraviolet light.
