The University of Arizona Alfie Norville Gem and Mineral Museum was originally founded in the early 1890s as a territorial museum to adequately represent ore and minerals of Arizona as well as illustrate the practical workings of the mines, mills and furnaces.
After extensive planning, event organizing and generous public and private donations, the museum is now open.

See you there at our next Tucson gathering!
