Great Day Trip

Most everything manmade has something to do with mining. At the Sterling Hill Mining Museum the'll show you just how it's done. From drilling and blasting to the processing of the ore. Right here in NJ is one of the worlds richest zinc ore deposits, the area boasts over 350 minerals, about 70 of which fluoresce. That's about 10% of the known minerals in the world right here in NJ. As well as the best fluorescent mineral deposit in the world. Come take a tour of a real underground mine and see for yourself the one and only fluorescent “Rainbow Room” and the world’s largest collection of world wide fluorescents anywhere on earth. You can collect fluorescent minerals yourself 7 days a week when the museum is open.
