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 currently closed but will be re-housed following refurbishment of the Kathleen Lonsdale building at the end of 2017. Read more here.  For advice on how to access the collection whilst the Rock Room is closed - email us.
