Enough schist-talking, this museum is fun to explore if you enjoy rocks and fossils. With a surprisingly extensive collection, the low, low price of free, interesting plaques, you're granite-teed a fun time. I thoroughly enjoy geology so I'm sure it's not for everyone but I...More

As far as museums in Kingston go, this one is small, but you can't beat the price: free. It has lots of samples, both local and from around the world. Their recent addition of the topography display made it an extra long visit for the...More

All that glitters ... very extensive collection of rock samples. Along with fossilized remains from plant to sea creatures. All housed in a University building. Good history lesson. Very tactile experience. A must see if you are into geology and crystals.

This museum is located on the Queen's University campus in Miller Hall. For such a small museum it covers a wide range of geological and earth science topics, especially paleontology and mineralogy. Apparently it's mostly used by local school groups but is certainly appropriate for...More

I brought my seven-year-old who is very interested in minerals and she loved it. There are a lot of samples on display as well as some educational dioramas and infographics, and a significant dinosaur/paleontology section which was an unexpected bonus. One of the geology professors...More

Rocks and minerals, geodes and crystals, fossils and dinosaurs. It only takes up one floor, but there's enough to see. Best part is it's free. The prof on site was very willing to show specimens and discuss the differences between geology, archaeology, paleontology and anthropology....wonder...More
