Minnesota Mineral Club Historic Info
Founded in 1945
Mission: We are an educational group based in the Twin Cities area of Minnesota, although membership is not restricted to residents of Minnesota. Monthly meetings are open to everyone. The Minnesota Mineral Club is a member of the Midwest Federation and the American Federation of Mineralogical Societies.
Field Trips are Fun!
Enjoy new friendships while collecting minerals!
Many of our trips are in Minnesota, but some go to Canada, Montana, Arizona, Colorado, Iowa and Arkansas! Trip leaders provide the level of difficulty and tools/skills required. Most of the field trip team bring samples back to the club meeting to show the variety of collected materials.
Example of what we find!
