The Arizona Mining, Mineral and Natural Resources Education Museum
The Arizona Mining, Mineral and Natural Resources Education (AMMNRE) Museum was recently established to promote Arizona’s natural resource heritage and future through education, research and outreach. The museum is in the development and renovation stage and is not currently open. Our end-state vision is to create a recognized destination for life-long experiential learning, showcasing current knowledge, cutting-edge research and innovation in the mining, mineral, timber, livestock and agricultural industries. The vision will also include the transformation of a dormant 1921 building into interactive galleries, idea labs, maker spaces, offices and public engagement spaces.
The Mineral Collection
The AMMNRE mineral collection, formerly the Arizona Mining and Mineral Museum collection, is comprised of over 20,000 rocks, minerals, and mining artifacts from Arizona and around the world.
