Rose Mofford Collection leaving the Mining & Mineral Museum

Former Arizona Gov. Rose Mofford published an op-ed piece in the Arizona Republic this morning announcing plans to move the Rose Mofford Collection of historical and personal items from the Arizona Mining and Mineral Museum (AMMM) to museums in Globe and Miami.

The AMMM closed at the beginning of the month in preparation for its conversion to the Arizona Experience museum in celebration of the 2012 centennial.

The Mofford Collection fills one large room in the AMMM and includes the former governors collections of kachinas, memorabilia, gifts, and awards (among many, many other items).

  1. The mineral museum was established in the current location through the dedicated efforts of Rose Mofford's good friend Polly Rosenbaum. When Polly died, a House resolution recognized her work in establishing a permanent home for the mineral museum.
