My name is Chris Dodge and I live right here in the great state of Tennessee. My family and I are full adventurers filled with passion to see the amazing things our state has to offer. We are avid hikers and have explored many different places in Tennessee and beyond but we are always thankful to be living in such a glorious state.
When you think of Bethel, Maine, you might think about the wonderful mountains surrounding the town, the beautiful colors in the fall, or a charming small town. There is, however, a secret hiding within the town that few people know about. It may seem odd to some, but there is one museum that houses the largest collection of lunar meteorites in the world.
With state-of-the-art displays, the largest collection of lunar meteorites, and loads of learning, The Maine Mineral and Gem Museum is a wonderful way to spend the day. Nestled in the foothills of the beautiful surrounding mountains, and in a charming little town, this recorded-breaking museum is just waiting to be explored. For any more information please visit The Maine Mineral and Gem Museum website.
