museum outreachThe Geology Museum is a popular tour destination on the University of Wisconsin Madison campus. From kindergarten classes through adult civic groups, our tours are tailored to deliver age-appropriate content to each group. Tours are approximately one hour long and feature hundreds of rock and mineral specimens, a black light mineral display and skeletons from dinosaurs and Ice Age animals. Admission to the museum is free, but for our guided tours we have a fee of $2 per person. Guided tours are available for groups of eight people or more.

To schedule a tour, please contact the tour office at (608) 262-1412 or email our tour coordinators at
