The museum gives the visitor a progressive understanding of our geologic heritage, and graphically demonstrates how scientists analyze the geologic past and present in order to better to manage our geologic future. Detailed displays and models represent the earth's processes of formation and development, illustrate the latest techniques for studying geologic history and predicting the geologic future, and stress geology's interrelationships with other sciences and with our everyday lives.
