Additional Info:

The Morris Museum’s geological collection, considered one of the best in New Jersey, is home to numerous specimens from throughout the world, with a focus on the state’s own mineralogical profile.

In the Earth Science Gallery, visitors can experience a variety of geological specimens in  its subject-specific cases addressing different types of minerals. Additionally, visitors can compare and contrast the three different types of rock (igneous, sedimentary and metamorphic). Fossils, especially those from New Jersey, are also represented in the gallery.

Twice a year the Museum and Mineral Society hosts annual minerals shows. The Annual Gem, Mineral and Fossil show takes place on the first Saturday in August, and Rock and Mineral Weekend is offered the Friday, Saturday and Sunday after Thanksgiving. Check www.morrismuseum.org for details.
