The Rice Northwest Rock and Mineral Museum is your museum. It depends upon you to keep it vital and fully staffed to help the hundreds of school children that attend learn more about natural science and the world around them. It depends upon you to keep our educational and outreach programs alive and available to everyone. It depends upon you to keep our admission fees low, allowing access to all.
There are many ways to donate and support this local and internationally acclaimed museum.
