  • Information
    Introduction
    The Geological Museum located in Yuseong-gu, Daejeon-si, is the nation’s first comprehensive museum dedicated to geology. The museum (est. 2001) boasts an architectural design inspired by the breastplate of a Stegosaurus and is divided into a main hall, 2 exhibition rooms, a show room, an outdoor exhibition area, and a special exhibition hall.

    The Main Hall of the museum is all about dinosaurs and is packed with fossils and other dinosaur-related items. Exhibition Room 1 is broken down into three different themes—Mother Earth, Fossils & Evolution, and Geological Excavation—while Exhibition Room 2 has on display diverse minerals, rocks, and meteorites.

    Operated with the goal of promoting public understanding and support of the field of geology, the museum offers geology-related movies/videos, lectures and diverse hands-on experience programs. There is even a geology specimen center where samples are preserved for use by researchers.
