When you first enter the Geologisk Museum, you are going to encounter an eye catching showcase of gemstones. These gemstones mainly have an origin in Norway.
On the ground floor you will find a presentation of the geological processes of the earth. This includes how volcanoes are formed, as well as how mountain ranges are formed and even how rocks are created.
The country is a nation that produces oil and more information about oil production in Norway is found in a separate exhibit. There is a display about Oslo Field (Oslofeltet). There are many remarkable rocks containing fossils on display in the museum. There are also many geological items that are normally found lying deep below the earth’s crust or in the deepest parts of the North Sea.
The building where the museum is located was built from 1911 through 1917. The building consists of 4 floors as well as a basement floor and additional space in the attic. It is made up of brick and has granite cladding.
Collections are displayed in Paleontology Hall, Mineral Hall, and Rock Hall. There are permanent exhibits of fossils, rocks, and minerals. In addition, there are traveling exhibits and other exhibits on display throughout the year.
