The photos make this look hokey. It's not.
2019年11月
This is a great place to visit. You MUST join the tour to see the mine and the exhibits museum, otherwise you're limited to the gift shop. The tour is wonderful.

The public tour is at 1pm (if I recall correctly).

When I first looked at this on line, the sparkly phosphorescent rocks kind of turned me off. I thought it would be a hokey display of silly bright colours, with little information to be had. I WAS WRONG.

The tour takes you into the mine, and through a museum of mining technology and geology. It's fascinating. I was there with my wife and father-in-law (95 years old), the terrain is not hard to manage at all. Also there, a tour of, maybe, 5th graders. The kids were loving it, and my F-I-L loved it too. As I did.

Really great facility, and wonderful tour guide. MUST SEE if you're in the area, and even if you have to travel a bit.

Don't miss the Franklin Mineral Museum and its Fluorescent room and mine shaft walk
2019年8月
The Franklin Mineral Museum is an interesting small museum dealing with the New Jersey Mining industry. The museum I have to admit is stuck in a time warp where I swear it is 1975 there. The signs are still typed with a typewriter.

What is lacks in aesthetics, it makes up in interest in the rock field, history of fossils and Native American art. There are three main galleries, one dedicated to minerals, rocks and gems, the next on fossils of both New Jersey and elsewhere and the next on American Indian art with arrowheads and equipment and then off to the is the Fluorescent room that when they turn off the lights off and turn the infrared lights on it is quite the lightshow.

Near the entrance you can explore the simulated mine shaft where you can crawl and then walk through. It gives you an idea of how the old mine was mined and how the job worked. It is really interesting.

In the back, you can pay to explore for rocks to take home, I walked in the quarry and looked for samples and in the end found three red fluorescent rocks and I thought that was pretty cool. The whole museum including exploring the quarry for stones is about two hours.

You will not be bored here. It really does capture attention.

Highlight of trip
2019年7月 • 好友
When a friend suggested a rock museum I was thought ok, it's a way to get out of the heat and learn about the area. I didn't realise that the rocks are naturally fluorescent! It was fascinating to see the displays and fun to then fo and collect some. It's a really simple, basic set up and looks like every other old historic museum run by volunteers but it was great. These 3 adults had a fun time.

Educational and Fun

Somewhat hard to find, this store and mineral yard is great for kids and adults alike. Their storefront/museum has a lot a go1rgeous stones and gems while out in the back is a huge yard where you can use the pick and bucket they provide to "prospect" your own unique stones and gems. Very relaxed and unusual experience.

Unique Assortment of Specimens

You will see a vast array of rocks and minerals found in the North Jersey area, some of which are not found anywhere else. Museum has florescent minerals and you can dig your own collection in the mineral dump out back. A great destination for anyone interested in geology.

My husband and I so enjoyed our visit to the Franklin Mineral Museum. After looking at their huge collection of specimens, we entered the fluorescent room. What an awesome sight. Rather plain rocks suddenly changed into neon colors in many designs with the flick of a switch. We chose to collect some rocks too. There is a shed with two UV lights: one longwave and one shortwave. Be sure to checks your rocks using each light, because some minerals only fluoresce under one or the other.We found some really nice specimens and also bought a hand-held UV light. We have been showing them to everyone who visits our house with all positive response.

Museum Tour

Local friends took us to see the wonderful collection & displays at the Franklin Mineral Museum. They had free passes, but would be worth paying anyway. What a fantastic collection of fluorescent minerals from Franklin, as well as minerals and fossils and artifacts from around the world. Quite a few items for sale in the gift shop, too.
