Frequently Asked Questions
When will the Quarry Exhibit Hall reopen?
October 4, 2011. For more information click here.
I heard that the Quarry Visitor Center is no longer part of the same building as the Quarry Exhibit Hall?
That is correct. Leaking water lines played a role in the bentonite soil expansion that badly damaged the former visitor center/quarry. The new visitor center is now located 1/2 mile down the hill from the quarry on a more stable soil layer. The quarry visitor center is open but the Quarry Exhibit Hall is closed until October 4th, 2011.
