Directions to Geology Museum
As a city founded on the discovery of mineral wealth, a visit to the Geology Museum housed inside Museum Africa is a must. This well-equipped museum showcases more than 17,000 artefacts, and it aims to explain how fascinating South Africa's geology really is, and how it has shaped the country as it is today.
Various displays take you through a number of geological worlds, with a special focus on gold, which sees its richest concentration right here in South Africa. There are also a number of special rooms which deal with important and fascinating issues, including a look at how continents, and Africa, reached their present-day state.
With a wealth of attractions both in the Museum Africa complex, and in the surrounding Newtown precinct, the Geology Museum offers a great addition to your inner-city experience, as you will learn about the country from a raw, natural viewpoint.
Tuesday - Sunday: 9am - 5pm
