The historic Rice Museum houses one of the world’s finest collections of rocks and minerals. With extensive galleries, touchable specimens, and skilled museum hosts we create a layered experience for visitors of all ages. We offer both guided tour programs and unguided group visits. 

Our building capacity allows us to accommodate up to 27 people per group. For groups larger than 27 attendees please contact us at to explore custom options.
The Museum has limited accessibility. There is no food on-site, however an outdoor picnic area is available.
