When is the Gallery open?

Unfortunately, the Gallery is currently closed to the general public due to COVID, we will update the website when we are able to welcome tours again. If you are interested in online opportunities, please contact us.

Can I bring my class group to the Gallery?

When we are open again, we are happy to have school groups tour the gallery. For groups larger than ten, we ask that you schedule a guided tour with the Gallery Educator. For more details see Outreach.

Can someone from the Monnig Meteorite Collection come to my classroom/educational group and give a talk?

We love bringing our outreach events to students in their classrooms and schools. If you would like to further enquire about having the gallery visit your school when we are open again for tours, please contact the Gallery using the Book a Tour form and indicate you would like us to visit you.

The Curator, Dr. Mayne, is also available to give talks about meteorites, meteorite research, and the Monnig Collection to local educational groups. Dr. Mayne contact info.
