An instructional video demonstrating diamond mining methods is available throughout the year in the Diamond Discovery Center.If you’re looking for things to do in Murfreesboro, Crater of Diamonds State Park interpreters present programs on a regular basis throughout the year. From Memorial Day through Labor Day, programs such as diamond mining demonstrations, rock hound hikes, and history walks may be offered during the day; evening programs may also be offered. Children ages 6-12 are invited to participate in the summer children's program series, "Crater Minors," which offers different fun, hands-on programs each week.

Advance arrangements for special programs for bus tours, schools, and other groups can be made with an interpreter.
