Mineralogy & Mining Education

The Sterling Hill Mining Museum is dedicated to educating teachers and their students about natural resource issues, with particular reference to the State of New Jersey.

Our education programs explore such topics as the geology and mineralogy of New Jersey, our nonrenewable resources (metals, nonmetals, and fuels), how those resources have been extracted and used over time, and, in a global sense, how our present lives are shaped by the materials available to us. We work within the broad fields of the STEM core subjects (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math), which we often explore not only in their current but also historical contexts.

All of our educational offerings are aligned with New Jersey core curriculum standards and are designed to be implemented by teachers within the context of their existing school curriculum.

Harness Racing Museum New York 1.jpg
240 Main Street, Goshen, NY, United States 33.23 mi

This unique and educational museum offers something you are not likely to find elsewhere: the history of Harness Racing. A popular event these days, harness racing has been hailed as the original Great American Pastime.

Housed in a beautifully restored gentleman’s stable, the Museum features exhibits of antique sulkies and sleighs, trophies, lifelike statuary, paintings, Currier & Ives prints, and more. And a realistic 3-D Harness Racing Simulator gets the blood flowing!

Follow the trail of Hambletonian, one of the most famous horses in harness racing. This lucky guy made his name not by racing — he was raced only once — but by siring over 1,300 foals. He was a champion, and Hambletonian blood dominated the breed of trotting and pacing horses and continues to do so today. The Hambletonian Stake, first raced in 1926 at the New York State Fair, has remained one of the sport’s premiere events and today is run at the Meadowlands for a purse exceeding one million dollars.

Individuals and families will enjoy this museum, as as well as the special events that take place here throughout the year. Visitors to the Museum will also want to visit neighboring Historic Track, the world’s oldest track, where horses and their trainers can be seen working out. Special races are held here, and those interested should call for details.

Mauch Chunk Museum.jpg
41 West Broadway, Jim Thorpe, PA, United States 59.07 mi

Jim Thorpe, PA, formerly Mauch Chunk, is a small picturesque Pennsylvania town with a fascinating history. Established in a wilderness on the banks of the Lehigh River in 1818, Mauch Chunk became a bustling coal transportation center, tourist Mecca, and the esteemed seat of Carbon County by the middle of the 19th century.

Riding the wave of prosperity along river, canal, Switchback Gravity Railroad and overland railroads as ‘black diamonds’ (anthracite coal) were transported by increasingly efficient means, famous as the “Switzerland of America” to 19th century rail excursionists, the town declined economically in the 20th century when petroleum replaced coal in home and industry and rail excursion tourism was replaced by the automobile.

Family Trips

Discover how the industrial outpost of Mauch Chunk became a prosperous coal shipping town and 19th century tourist Mecca, second to Niagara Falls in popularity. Relive the town’s glory days when coal was King and tourism Queen. Learn of its economic demise and bizarre resurrection as Mauch Chunk traded its name for the name and body of 1912 Olympic hero, Jim Thorpe. Discover the feats and demons of Jim Thorpe,”The Greatest Athlete in the World.”

Commencing with an overview and tour of the Mauch Chunk Museum, courses follow the historical continuum:

  • Industrial Outpost in a Wilderness
  • The Lehigh Canal:Lifeline of the American Industrial Revolution
  • Mauch Chunk’s Amazing Rollercoaster: The Switchback Gravity Railroad
  • Mauch Chunk’s Millionaires & The Social Scene
  • The Tourist Influx
  • Economic Decline
  • Mauch Chunk Trades Its Name for a Body
  • Jim Thorpe: All American

  • Asa Packer Mansion
  • Old Jail (site of the Mollie Maguire hangings in Carbon County)

The story of Mauch Chunk is brought to life by video, images, artifacts, and four working models:

  • A water filled, working model of Josiah White’s Bear Trap Lock, a collapsible water powered lock which permitted trains of coal arks to travel down the Lehigh River.

  • standard lock on the Lehigh Canal

  • An operable miter lock and drop gate lock on the Lehigh Canal.

  • A 30 ft replica of Mauch Chunk’s famous Switchback Gravity Railroad which progressed from a coal carrier to a passenger carrier of such magnitude that Mauch Chunk, “The Switzerland of America,” became second to Niagara Falls as a 19th century tourist destination.
