No matter what you study, you can find something fun and fascinating at the UNM Meteorite Museum and Collection! Whether you are a geology major, an art major, or anything in between, something about outer space just rocks (get it?). The Meteorite Museum is a hidden gem on UNM’s central campus with free admission. The museum features a ton of meteorite parts, literally! The collection includes a piece of a meteorite that fell in Norton County, Kansas that weighs over a metric ton. The museum also contains pieces of meteorites found in the Sahara Desert that originate from the moon and Mars! With very friendly staff filled with fascinating stories and facts, the Meteorite Museum is a must-see. And with its free admission and convenient location, there are no excuses to miss it!
