  • Giant Meteor in the courtyard sets the standard for this museum, which I had long wanted to visit. About 30 mini exhibitions telling about Denmark's long journey from a location South of the equator in the Precambrian to the current location in the northern hemisphere half way towards the North Pole. World map by bekræftiger Alfred Wegener's theory of each exhibition continental drift. There are certain minerals from each era. In particular, the exhibition about what happened for 65 million years ago is exciting and well documented with finds from Mors and Fur. There was exhibition of shooting stars, planets and earthquake zones and the Greenland rocks. On 1. Sal was a huge collection of stunning colorful minerals with their chemical formulas. It reached only a small portion of the I, but admission to this museum is ridiculously small so that I come again.

  • Second floor has a huge mineral collection. Some very unique samples too. Changing exhibits are interesting as well. There's a curious and rare exhibit with some nice odd things to see. Huge meteorite in the square. Overall, about 2 hours to see. And at 40 kroner, pretty inexpensive.
  • Nice meteorite at the entrance. Everything goes down hill after that. Very cheap entrance, but exhibition is frozen in the 1970s. For instance, there are some nice rocks from Jugosławia and Africa city. Most exhibitions are all in Danish and content wise they are equivalent to primary school geography class. Some rooms smell weird. On the second floor you will find and exhaustive collection of one (and sometimes two) of every rock on the planet. This sound fun, and it is for the first 3 minutes, but it is a bit like watching paint dry after that. One of the hallways in the otherwise nice building seemed to be painted by the local kindergarteners with blindfolds on (what a way to ruin a building!). What this place needs is a serious remodeling. Hire a newly graduated Liberal Arts and Sciences student and bring some life (and political correctness) back to this otherwise depressing building. The displays don't attract the eye and it really is only interesting to someone with a degree or a or a keen interest in geology. If you have 1.5 hrs 2.5 euros and no expectations then drop by.
  • Huge meteorite in the grounds, and the largest one (of 6 to hit North Greenland together) is inside the museum. Worth a visit just to see this giant space rock.
  • Beautiful historic building. Great exhibitions. Including local geological history. The Greenland Room doesn't really communicate the long corporation with Greenland's Geological Surveys. On the other side the Natural Historical room replica from 1600 something with oddities and curiosities is really original and also worth a visit.
  • Interesting exhibits, some aren't translated to English though
