  • There are very rich samples of minerals, rocks, crystals, fossils etc. The reception and staff are very friendly and helpful. The library is open to public, there is even a lovely mini-jurassic sandpit inside. Posts, maps, videos, demos are very informative. Pity the education centre was closed when we visited, but it looks also very carefully designed peeked from outside.
  • National Earthquake Centre and Geology Learning centre with permenent exhibits
