PSF VIRTUAL

EARTH & SPACE SCIENCE MUSEUM

From 2014 to 2019 PSF had an Earth and Space Science Museum located in Elizabeth, Illinois. It showcased meteorites, local geology specimens, astronaut memorabilia and Antarctica exploration displays. In 2019 the museum closed so that PSF could focus on meteorite research. You can view a virtual rendition of the museum at the link below.
