DIGS: - "CAN YOU DIG IT?"

Yes you can!  Come to Marion, Kentucky and dig for Fluorite and related minerals during the daytime digs hosted by the museum.  Nighttime digs are also offered and are a completely different experience as black lights are used to identify and collect fluorescent minerals.

Scheduled Digs for 2017

Due to issues beyond the Ben E. Clement Mineral Museum Board of Directors control, regrettably, all digs sponsored by the Ben E. Clement Mineral Museum have been canceled for the 2017 season or until further notice.  If you are currently registered for a dig the museum will be sending refund checks ASAP.
