FUTURE HOME OF THE ROBERT R. WIENER MINERAL GALLERY
The Robert R. Wiener Mineral Gallery will open in 2022 as part of the New Bruce Grand Opening. These six mineral masterpieces are part of a small sneak preview. The new gallery will showcase over one hundred exceptional specimens, arranged in custom installation to highlight the brilliant colors, dazzling lusters, and fascinating crystal forms of minerals from all across the globe.
This display and the new gallery are made possible by the generosity of Mr. Wiener, who has assembled one of the world’s most extensive mineral collections over the course of four decades. He has made it his mission to share these specimens for the enjoyment of all, and the Bruce Museum is proud to be the future home to a gallery that will thrill generations of visitors.
