The Lapworth Museum of Geology has in excess of a quarter of a million items in its collections, many of which have never been put on public display, until now!

From 19th century teaching aids and bones from one of the largest birds to have ever lived, to 190 million year old fossils, this exhibition showcases the breadth of our vast collection.

Staff, volunteers and students at the Lapworth have selected their favourite object from within our collections and highlighted why these objects are important to them. Some people have chosen them based on their relation to science, whereas others have gone for a more personal approach.

These are our favourite things.... we invited you to come and find yours!
