One of North America’s premier mineral museums, the A. E. Seaman Mineral Museum is nationally and internationally recognized by mineral collectors and connoisseurs. Featuring the largest public exhibit and finest collection of minerals from the Great Lakes region and the world’s best collection of Michigan minerals, the museum exhibits feature the rich colors of nature's masterpieces. While visitors marvel, they learn about minerals through informative displays and discover how minerals are important in your life. There are about 4,000 specimens on exhibit. These change as new specimens are acquired, loaned to the museum from private collectors, and cycled from our extensive holdings. Many people spend at least two hours for a visit even though it takes much more time to truly see everything offered in the exhibits.
