The old Mineral Museum (located at Flandrau Planetarium) is now closed. The new facility at the Historic Pima County Courthouse, is also currently NOT open at this time. We are working with Pima County and the University of Arizona to go through the correct protocols to safely open to the public. We will update all platforms when we are able to open. Thank you.

The Museum is located on Church Avenue across from the Joel D. Valdez Main Library and Jacome Plaza in between the major cross streets: W Alameda Street and W Pennington Street . The nearest major cross-streets are Congress Street and Stone Avenue. We are located on the left side of the Courthouse on the lower level. We are fully wheelchair accessible and are compliant with ADA building standards. The Southern Arizona Heritage & Visitor Center neighbors us in the right wing of the courthouse.
