Museum Education Kits

  MUSEUM EDUCATION KITS  

The National Mining Hall of Fame and Museum has a large, hands-on collection used in our teaching and displays. Many kits and objects are available to borrow for educational purposes. Use hands-on objects to enhance lessons in your classroom or within the museum.

 

Museum Kits contain specimens, artifacts, models, and activities for a wide variety of ages. Designed for hands-on learning, the collections can be used in many different ways to help you explore earth sciences, history, and our environment.
