    The Vision:
                        In his biography, Ben Clement related that he was born on a farm in rural Tennessee and was inspired by a man who gave him a telescope and a book on astronomy. His uncle, the reverend Andres Clement, recognized in his young nephew an eagerness to learn, and took him into his Nashville, Tennessee, home to nurture hime in faith, science, and history as he attended college preparatory school.

This museum is awesome! Minerals from all over the world which are nature made diamond shapes, to glow in the dark, to spiked shaped, and everything in between or anything you can imagine like a meteor, fossils and drill core rocks. History of mining operations with all kinds of instruments on display and many pictures. This place is SO much bigger than I would have imagined. The guide we had was a retired surveyor and he was very knowledgeable, which made everything so much more interesting. One of the best things about this museum is most things are out in the open and it's hands on, they incourage you to touch and feel most of the items. Then for an extra small fee, you can go outside in what looks like gravel piles and look for minerals, fossils and anything else you can find. A child with her grandmother found fossils and different minerals in the piles while we were there. It was all so amazing. If you're a rock hound or anything else you will really enjoy this museum and it's sad that it's really not better known as a place to visit. I've posted only a few of my favorite pictures, there's so much more to see.

A hidden gem in western Kentucky. The tour guide was extremely knowledgeable and was ready to help answer any questions that arrow. The gift shop has a variety of minerals and gifts to purchase.
