“Step into earth science”

The Sterling Hill Mining Museum is rich in history, but the last thing you might expect to find in an old ore mill would be a black light party. That's kind of what the Thomas S. Warren Museum of Fluorescence, housed in a few rooms at the Sterling Hill Mining Museum, basically is. Cases upon cases of minerals, lit up by black lights, reveal the lesser-known fluorescent properties of rocks and crystals, and there are even displays of everyday objects you might not expect to be fluorescent. They even have an exhibit of vintage ultraviolet lights, and displays of fluorescent art! It's a trippy stop, and one that makes for some out-of-this-world photos on your tour of the Mining Museum.  An enduring geological mystery. A world-famous mineral deposit. And, it’s all right here in a New Jersey museum, just an hour’s drive from New York’s George Washington Bridge!  The industrial complex that was once the Sterling Hill zinc mine is now open to the public as the Sterling Hill Mining Museum.
