Geology Museum

The Rutgers University Geology Museum features exhibits on geology, natural history, and anthropology, with an emphasis on the natural history of New Jersey. Exhibits include a dinosaur trackway, a mounted mastodon, rocks and minerals from New Jersey and around the world, and florescent minerals. The Rutgers Geology Museum was founded in 1872 by State Geologist George H. Cook to exhibit the many specimens collected by the New Jersey Geological Survey, which he directed. The building, originally known as the Geological Hall, was designed by Henry Janeway Hardenbergh, a Rutgers graduate and descendent of the university’s first president. Hardenbergh later earned fame as the architect of the Dakota Apartments and the Plaza Hotel. http://geologymuseum.rutgers.edu/
