Tickets for this event have sold out. 

Join us at the 2023 Collections & Cocktails fundraiser for an evening to support the Grand Rapids Public Museum and view selections from the Museum’s Rocks, Minerals, Gemstones, and Jewelry Collection. Rocks and minerals make up a significant portion of the GRPM’s Science Collection, with over 5,000 specimens, many of them collected around 1854.

The celebration will feature signature cocktails by New Holland Brewing and dinner accompanied by the stories and history of these artifacts. Funds raised through Collections & Cocktails support the Museum’s Collection of over 250,000 artifacts and specimens, caring for and preserving these pieces, including their stories and use in educational programs.
