The Mother Earth Mining Company

The Mother Earth Mining Company in Brookfield, CT provides kids with an interest in rocks and minerals a great opportunity to take on the role of a miner in their Mother Earth Mining Experience.

Kids love mining for gemsMother Earth Mining Experience - This is an educational and fun-filled outing for kids. The experience begins by giving our young treasure-seekers miner's lamps to see into the cavernous mine, as well as a glow-in-the-dark bucket to be filled with beautiful, rough gemstones. Then they're off into the re-created mine. Miners dig for hidden gems! Every natural rock and mineral is theirs to keep. When they emerge with up to a pound of natural gemstones, they sit down to learn about everything they found.  This is a one-of-a-kind mining experience that children really enjoy.


After having a fun filled time at the mine, both kids and parents alike can stop by the Mother Earth Gallery to find additional treasures.

The Mother Earth Gallery

Mother Earth Gallery - features home decorative gifts that reflect nature’s beauty and the bounty of our Earth.  You can shop for a  variety of crystals, candles, incense, and aromatherapy products.

Feng-Shui - the “ancient oriental art of placement.” Feng-Shui is becoming increasingly popular in American society.  You can learn more about Feng-Shui at the gallery and pick up many products to help promote health, happiness and prosperity in your home.

The Mother Earth Mining Company is available for both educational programs and birthday party adventures!

Activities include:

The game of ROCKO - similar to Bingo. Dig in buckets of gravel to find minerals. Winners who fill up their cards first receive beautiful agate slices.

Mining Around the World - an educational video showcasing where minerals are found, and how they become finished gemstones.

The Mining Experience - Children don helmets with lamps, grab their own buckets, and enter the Mother Earth Mine where they search for a buried treasure.   Up to a pound of Amethyst, Pyrite, Geodes, can be found!

Discover our Globe Cake - The perfect way to finish off a special event is with a cake!  This is especially true at birthday parties.  The Globe cake is a delectable chocolate buttercream cake showing all the continents.
