On Tuesday, I had another cultural visit!
This museum is open daily ( except Mondays), with different opening hours and its building was intended to accommodate a synagogue when edificated.
The MNG presents two sections, geological and industrial.
The geological section has different collections : mineralogy (precious stones), stratigraphy (rocks divided in formations and relative geological eras) and minerals of economical interest.
In the first room, you have some informations about the history of our Earth and a little collection of fossils from Mozambique, while in the second room you find maps about the geology of this country.
In the third room ( divided into 5 sections), you can see the macro & micro characteristics of some rocks; crystallography with some didactic models; identification properties of minerals and a dark window where are put some minerals with natural radioactivity, that you can observe when you with on an ultraviolet lamp!
In the fourth room, instead, there is a collection of minerals from Mozambique and in the fifth one you find rocks and minerals that have some interest in the industrial sector.
