The National Mining Hall of Fame and Museum announces the addition of three lunar meteorites to its Expanding Boundaries: Harrison Schmitt and the New Mining Frontier exhibit.

The lunar meteorites are now on view through September 2016 at the museum. These specimens are on loan from Mile High Meteorites, the Matt Morgan Collection.

“I’m extremely honored to have my lunar meteorites on display at the National Mining Hall of Fame and Museum,” said Morgan. “These fragments of the moon are larger than those that are on display in many of the world’s top museums and represent over four billion years of lunar history. I sincerely hope they may help inspire the next generation of space explorers.”
