The Birthplace of Geology
Event was commissioned to redesign the museum’s 19th century interiors and reinterpret its collections for 21st century audiences, while remaining true to the spirit of the Grade One Listed building. Priorities were to address the audiences which the Museum wished to attract – families, day trippers, enthusiasts – by treating them to a journey through the geological strata of the earth as they move through the building.
Important collections of fossils, minerals, natural and social history are used to explore the relevance of geology in the past, as well as to our lives today. Layered interpretation enables objects to speak in different ways and facilitates flexibility in developing additional content.
