A special design concept was used in the Gallery of Minerals and Rocks. This concept blends together elegant specimens and popular scientific knowledge with a combination of hands-on components and specimen displays, a mixture of virtual exhibits and real displays, and thereby fuses education with entertainments. Thus, the Gallery of Minerals and Rocks serves the needs of both specialists and ordinary visitors.
Through personal involvement and with audio-visual aids, the visitor learns how minerals and rocks are formed, their primordial status, their physical appearance and characteristics and their applied significance.
Representative samples of different mineral and rock groups are exhibited.
