Virtual Mineral Tour

60 minute Program | All ages

Join us for a virtual trip to the museum. Your group will explore the basics of mineral identification using mineral properties such as streak, cleavage, colour, crystal shape, hardness, and specific gravity. During this program, we’ll discuss how we use minerals in our everyday lives and explore the unique properties of common rock-forming minerals.

This online program is 1-hour long and includes 15-minutes for technology setup/check in, a 30-minute guided virtual tour with a museum interpreter and 15 minutes for Q & A.
