Over 25,000 catalogued Hampshire rocks and fossils, the majority of which were collected during the past 50 years; numerous rocks, minerals and fossils from elsewhere in the British Isles, mostly collected more than 100 years ago; a comprehensive library containing, books, publications, borehole logs, maps, site plans and photographs.
We have a strict Collecting Policy, which governs what we collect and how we collect it.
Items in the collections document Hampshire's rich geological and palaeontological heritage. They are used in displays, for teaching and by geologists for reference and research.
Anyone who wishes to work on or consult the geological collections and library please contact us.
