Crater Rock Museum – Oregon

6/22/22 Crater Rock Museum, located at 2002 Scenic Ave, Central Point, OR. See their webpage at: https://craterrock.com/. Shanna and I visited this museum/rock shop after our visit to the Great Cats park. This museum and rock shop was a delightful surprise. I couldn’t believe how many mineral specimens were in this somewhat bland building. It was awesome. I highly recommend that you visit if you can.
