Our display is not large by many other museum standards. So don't go expecting to find a huge building staffed by knowledgeable mineral experts! It is however, a wonderful collection of many fine quality Australian and overseas sourced mineral specimens. There are also a number of cut and uncut gem minerals on display. We have five large display cabinets that are roughly themed into groups.

It has always been an aim of the trustees of the museum to make this collection a showcase of the colours and crystal forms of the mineral world rather than just a reference collection. This is a celebration of the natural beauty of the mineral world.

The Queensland Secondary Schools curriculum now includes elements of geology and earth sciences. We welcome teachers and students to view our display. Many children (and adults!) will be shocked and surprised at these natural wonders. We hope you enjoy our display and come again as we add to it.
