Museum of Geosciences

Visit the Museum

Omni Globe

The Museum of Geosciences is housed in the VT Department of Geosciences and located in 2062 Derring Hall.  Exhibits include the OmniGlobe, gems, minerals, rocks, fossils, and a full-scale cast of an Allosaurus dinosaur skeleton.  The minerals and fossils on display include many specimens from Virginia and famous localities worldwide. The OmniGlobe can project global datasets, such as weather and plate tectonics, on a sphere.  

Public hours are 8:00am-5:00pm, Monday-Friday during spring and fall academic semesters. Children should be accompanied by an adult. Please see the Visiting page for reservations, tour leaders, parking, or more information.  

EVENTS

To help protect our community, the Museum does not expect to be open to the public or conducting public events for the rest of the Virginia Tech Spring Semester. We will post changes as needed. Please see the Virginia Tech COVID-19 page for more information about the University response.
