We have driven past this museum many times and finally had an opportunity to stop & spend time there. A volunteer spent a lot of time with us, explaining where all the rocks, crystals & quartz were from and how they were mined. There's a small gift shop & donations are gladly accepted. We were surprised to find some large quartz had come from a town we once lived in in eastern Connecticut. There is an annual festival each September. Great place for families!

Kent is a lovely town and this event was fantastic. The grounds are beautiful and feature such a large collection of antique tractors, cars, and bikes. There's an awesome museum of gems and mining history as well.

The people that maintain the museum should be applauded. What a wonderful look back at the machinery that built America. On swap meet weekend when all the machinery is running there is much to see and learn. Plus the property itself is very nice.

This is a true work or love, labor, and amazing dedication. The new exhibit of the Gems and history of mining in the area is FANTASTIC, had a great time visiting with all the volunteer docents these guys and gals really know their stuff. Working Tractors, Steam Units, Trains, and mining equipment makes this a DEFINITE VISIT if you are close.
