  • This event has passed.

This exhibition runs until Saturday 7 October 2023, 10am to 4pm every day except Sundays and Bank Holidays.

Riches of the Earth reveals the beauty of minerals through the astounding forms and vibrant colours of more than a hundred carefully selected specimens from the Bath Royal Literary and Scientific Institution Collection.

Alongside these, exquisite close-up photographs will allow visitors to appreciate tiny details of crystal form and colour. The marvellous colours and forms of these natural wonders will delight the viewer: glacial blue-green beryl, rainbow-hued opal, fiery red heulandite, lurid yellow sulphur, along with hexagonal prisms of aragonite, eccentrically fused cubes of fluorite, and needle-like crystals of Goethite.

We have some fun and free activities for kids this summer including our Dreamy Dragon Trail, a mineral treasure hunt, rock painting and stone stacking!
