I got back to Alaska last Thurs and have finally gotten myself dug out enough to start posting pictures again from TGMS 2011. But before i do, i wanted to post pictures from the UA Mineral Museum, which featured an excellent exhibit on the first floor of Afghan minerals. Gail already posted some pictures of this exhibit on her TGMS thread, hopefully these pictures are a useful adjunct.

Matt, so glad to know you made it home safely. I loved meeting your Mom and hope she is well also? Thanks for posting these wonderful photos, everyone takes different photos so it is great to see all shots possible.
I was pleased we got to visit a bit more than usual.

All the best!

And now downstairs to what I believe is the permanent exhibit. I can't be sure, but the displays downstairs look a like what was there last year.

So as not to add a new section here are some photos of the new Alfie Norville Gem & Mineral Museum taken back in May 2021. They are open to the public starting next week. When in town make the time to see the museum.

Final set. I need to go back and spend some more time in seeing all there is to see. This is a great museum and very well thought out and planned.
