Among the most talked about places for any rock-hound to visit in the U.P. is the A.E. Seaman Mineral Museum.  Most people would never guess that we have a world renowned mineral museum in the Keweenaw.  The museum is home to the largest and finest collection of U.P. minerals on display of any museum in the world with several perfect high quality datolite specimens, giant copper pieces, silver crystals, and amazing Lake Superior agates.
