    Our growing Museum houses more than forty displays and exhibits covering Earth History and processes as well as Earth materials and resources. Touring the Museum you will be introduced to the fascinating world of rocks, minerals and their economic uses. You may wish to learn about the origin and occurrence of coal, oil and gas, or find out about how glaciers of the Ice Age formed the soils, landscape and drainage systems of Illinois. You can see how Earth materials are naturally recycled and discover how rocks and fossils provide clues to the Earth's past. You may wish to learn how the continents move, where ocean basins come from, and how mountain ranges form. Or you may step back into time for a fascinating tour of the animals, plants and environments of the past; introduce yourself to the world of dinosaurs, or learn about the seaways and coal swamps which covered Illinois in ancient times.
