Treasures of the Mineral World


Glenbow’s mineralogy exhibition offers a colourful glimpse into the depth and diversity of the mineral world. The gallery is a popular stop for geologists, rock hounds and visitors of all ages.

See minerals that glow in the dark, find out what Fool’s Gold really is, look at a piece of the earth’s oldest rock, or take in the natural beauty of rock crystals in every colour of the rainbow. It’s all here in Glenbow’s Rocks and Minerals gallery.

Treasures of the Mineral World opened in 1976 when Glenbow’s building was newly completed

An example of Glenbow’s wide ranging collection, the Rocks & Minerals gallery has been a favourite destination for several generations of children, due to its treasure box atmosphere and glow-in-the-dark specimens. Minerals from all over the world are on display, and the gallery also shows off some of the highlights from the museum’s collection of precious and semi-precious gems.
