Tour of the Great North Museum: Hancock Collections - Minerals

2pm – 3pm

The Society has ½ million items in its collections from Dodo bones to Egyptian mummies and most of these are held in
special stores in the basement of Newcastle’s Discovery Museum. The museum curators have kindly agreed to lead tours of these collections exclusively for Society members. This is a fantastic opportunity to see material that is not on display and to learn about the items and their care first hand.

To mark the International Year of Crystallography join Sylvia Humphrey and Derek Teasdale to explore some of the Society’s mineral collections.

This tour is free but you must book in advance as numbers are limited. To book places please contact the Society office 0191 232 6386 or
