About the Geological Museum

The Geological Museum is part of the Natural History Museum of Denmark. The exhibitions at the museum cover the Solar system, the evolution of life on Earth, volcanoes, minerals, and the geological evolution of Denmark and Greenland.

The collections at the Geological Museum have been built up through centuries and include large collections of minerals, fossils, petrology, and meteorites.

The museum organizes guided tours for school classes and runs series of popular talks for the general public (in Danish). If you have found a strange rock you are always welcome to bring it in for a good explanation.

The Geological Museum is also part of the University of Copenhagen and the scientific staff is active in research, teaching and public outreach of Geology.
