HOUGHTON -- The A.E. Seaman Mineral Museum is opening in its new facility at 1404 E. Sharon Avenue (just east of Garnet Street on Sharon across from the ATDC) at 9 a.m. Tuesday, July 5.
The Beauty of Minerals gallery and the gift shop are open, and the complete Copper Country gallery will open by about mid-July. These two galleries will provide a glimpse of the new museum, as they represent only about 20 percent of the total exhibit space.
In October additional galleries will be open to the public; the exhibit space will be completely open by May 2012. The museum will be open 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., Tuesday through Saturday, from July 5 to mid-October. Visit now for a glimpse inside the new facility and again as more exhibits open up.
