Rutgers Geology Museum Reviews & Ratings
Amazing little museum with a lot of exhibits! And free admission! Worth to visit.
Took a group of kids there for a field trip. They had a great time.
Small museum 2 floors alot of artifacts to see on 2nd floor. There is a rock room that when u turn lights off the rocks glow in the dark
Small, but interesting museum. Kids loved the mummy, dinosaur and glow in the dark rock collection.
Great learning, esp for kids. Quizzes and activities keep then engrossed. Well managed by the mgmt onky thibg we missed was the air conditioning in the summer
