The museum will feature meteorites, rocks, minerals and fossils which include invertebrates and vertebrates. Some of the highlights in the museum include a 50-million-year-old fish, ore samples from Utah mines, a six-foot clam from the dinosaur age, 500-year-old trilobites and fossilized lightening strikes.

The grand opening will take place in the Geology Building in room 203 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
