Downstairs in the museum they have a large room filled with petrified logs. These are petrified pine cones.

Yesterday Johnathan had a Cub Scout den meeting at the Rice Museum of Rocks and Minerals. The den was completing their geologist badge, so they needed to see some specimens of the three types of rock. Hannah got to tag along also and she enjoyed seeing the museum again and bringing her camera along. The boys asked some really great questions of our tour guide. It was nice to go along at a slower pace and take some photos and really just look at some of the amazing rocks, and crystals they have on display. After this outing both of the kids are wanting to go rock hunting to see if they can find some of the amazing rocks they learned about yesterday.
