So, it was a good meeting and we enjoyed talking about MINDAT and all the programs. Jim and I were recently made managers on their team, both of us are very interested in helping with endowments for the continuation of MINDATS future.

...We decide to take a break and head to the Sonoran Desert Museum on the west side of Tucson, a very beautiful facility with a zoo, mineral museum display area and lots of programs teaching about beekeeping, raptor rehabilitation, etc.

...The entrance to the mineral museum area is pretty cool, they warn you to get your eyes adjusted once inside before walking around.
This is a great place to bring the family while in Tucson, you can enjoy lots of family and still visit minerals here.
