The Geology Collection

The Geology Collection

Learning with objects has been an integral part of geological study at UCL since the first half of the nineteenth century. Today, the collection includes not only rocks, minerals and fossils collected over the last 175 years, but also individual collections of historical importance. The highlights include the Johnston-Lavis Volcanological collection, the Planetary Science Collection (Regional Planetary Image Facility) and the internationally recognised Micropalaeontological collections.

The Rock Room is not managed by UCL Culture and is currently closed due to the ongoing COVID-19 situation. However, it can be viewed digitally via the department of Earth Sciences virtual tour https://www.ucl.ac.uk/earth-sciences/virtual-360-tour
