Explore the Geology Museum and take a peek into Wisconsin's deep history!

On your visit yo
u can touch rocks from a time when there were volcanoes
in Wisconsin; see corals, jellyfish and other sea creatures that used to
live and swim where we now walk; and stand under the tusks of a mastodon
while imagining yourself in the Ice Age.  Also on display at the Geology
Museum are rocks and minerals that glow, a model of a Wisconsin cave,
dinosaurs and meteorites.

Our mineral, rock and fossil collections have the power to educate and
inspire visitors of all ages.  Come see for yourself!
