Summary:Geology is a fascinating and broad science that incorporates many other sciences! At the Museum of Geology, you'll find many compelling exhibits focusing on: PALEONTOLOGY - the study of ancient life, and MINERALOGY - the study of minerals, including gems, crystals, and the rocks they form. Our Museum of Geology features fascinating mounted skeletons of dinosaurs, mammals, marine reptiles, and fish; rare fossils from the White River Badlands, arranged in time-specific dioramas; mineral displays including the Hall of South Dakota Minerals, meteorites, and a fluorescent mineral room that's sure to captivate; The Kids' Zone with hands on experiences for our young visitors; and a Museum gift shop with toys, books, models, rocks, posters, and more! If you're visiting us online, we'd like to introduce you to our Online Exhibits. These dynamic visual presentations showcase research by SD Mines faculty and students. Learn more about research and exploration here in the Black Hills and across the globe.
