The Weis isn’t your grandfather’s museum full of dusty old glass cases — although we’ve got some really old stuff here!
Imagine a museum where you can make an earthquake, walk through a mine tunnel, shoot off a quarry blast, touch a dinosaur bone, and make it rain!
That’s the Weis!
And everyone — from the advanced collector to the youngster who just started picking up rocks — will be amazed at the marvelous minerals and fabulous fossils on display, too.
While you’re having lots of hands-on, interactive fun, you’ll discover that there were once volcanoes, mountains and tropical reefs right here in Wisconsin. In fact, you’ll learn that every rock tells a story, and you can read them yourself!
The Weis Earth Science Museum is the
official mineralogical museum of Wisconsin
