Are you looking to forge a deeper connection with the Rice Museum? Do you have a favorite rock or mineral? Whether it is a gift for yourself, on behalf of a classroom or group, or in honor of a friend, by adopting a specimen, you provide financial support for the Museum and support the mission of preserving our collection for future generations.
By joining our Adopt-a-Mineral program, you become an important part of the Museum. Rock and mineral collections require special cleaning, maintenance, and care. Your yearly tax-deductible sponsorship makes an important contribution and gives you a personal connection to the Museum.
