The new University of Arizona Alfie Norville Gem & Mineral Museum will bring globally renowned scientists to Tucson and set off an explosion of tourism. It will make the UA Geosciences department a center for Earth sciences and unify the mineralogy community that revolves around it.
The museum is on track to open in late 2020. And that depends on you.
In order to take advantage of this opportunity, the museum must raise a $15 million. The museum renovation at the Pima County Courthouse is targeted for completion in 2020.
We know we can meet this challenge, and we can do so very quickly. Let’s turn this historic building into a world-famous museum and world-class destination for Earth scientists. Since you are recognized as someone with a vital interest in the project, we’d like to ask for your help in making this vision a reality.
