Pavilion Map

Exhibits of the Copper Pavilion include the Guinness World Record 17-ton copper slab (not for touching since over time touching will change the surface) and a smaller 550-pound copper slab both from the bottomlands of Lake Superior. In addition, in the summer of 2016 there will be an exhibit of glacially transported native copper, called "float” copper.

COPPER PAVILION

While the large slab of native copper on exhibit in the Copper Pavilion is impressive, single masses of native copper weighing up to 400 tons were found in the mines.
