MUST - University Museum of Earth Sciences
The MUST - University Museum of Earth Sciences , was born from the merger of the three historical museums of Geology, Mineralogy and Paleontology of Sapienza University of Rome , which houses about 35,000 mineralogical, 6,000 geological and 100,000 paleontological samples (minerals, gems, meteorites, rocks and fossils, which are not infrequently unique specimens at national and international level), as well as books, thematic maps and instruments of historical importance.
The total area of the MUST , distributed over 4 floors, is approximately 4,100 m², almost entirely dedicated to the exhibition halls. To these are added approximately 300 m² for research laboratories shared between the Museum, Department and Faculty.
At the moment, only a room of about 480 m² is fully available for use, hosting the temporary exhibition Terra: what a surprise! .
The other spaces will soon be ready for opening, at the end of a demanding and complete process of restructuring the spaces.
