  • Exhibition – Permanent gallery

Michael Bainbridge © Michael Bainbridge

Close.

This fascinating exhibition showcases dazzling minerals and rocks, and explains how geological forces have shaped our planet.

There are many interactive games and simulations, which visitors of all ages will enjoy:

  • build a volcano
  • create an earthquake
  • check out the fun sedimentator, magmanator and metamorphicator that reveal how different types of rock forms over time
  • manipulate a 1.8 metre-high animated globe
  • explore a limestone cave with stalactites, stalagmites and trickling water.

And, of course, the gorgeous, colourful specimens from our world-class collection steal the spotlight, with even more rocks and minerals to behold than before!

Find out even more about the gallery.

Cost: Included with museum admission.
