The most valuable scientific collection at the Geological Museum of Szczecin University

The Geological Museum of the University of Szczecin was founded in 1994. For 24 years the Museum has changed its location several times and last year it finally moved to the Natural Sciences Education and Research Centre of the University of Szczecin. The Museum’s collection holds over 4320 exhibits, including such specimens as minerals, rocks, fossils, meteorites, and sand samples. The most valuable scientific collections are: the specimens of one of the oldest rocks in the world, originated from the Isua Greenstone Belt, Oligocene sand concretions, the so-called Szczecin balls (Germ. Stettiner Kugeln), the collection of minerals with the fluorescence phenomenon on display, and the collection of sand samples from various beaches and deserts. The Museum serves its primary educational function and organises many events, such as geological workshops, trainings, and others.
