What people are saying:

For the University of Waterloo, the appointment is still very good. Volunteer students can take a tour and introduce it. The campus is relatively modern and the dormitory conditions are good. Especially in the course of learning, the school will give a lot of innovative support, small teams develop their own things, and really apply what they have learned...

    Fascinating. Great for adults as well as kids.

    Well curated range of geological samples that includes prehistoric creatures. Love the entrance way through a model mining tunnel that leads into the samples of minerals, gems stones and fossils.

Additional Information

Introduction

Conceived as a Canada centennial project, the University of Waterloo Earth Sciences Museum was founded in 1967 as The Biology−Earth Sciences Museum, and opened to the public in 1968. The museum remained in the original space until August 2003 when it was moved to the newly built EIT building. Curator Peter Russell and Cheryl Atkinson of Teeple Architects were involved in the design of the Exhibit Atrium of the EIT building, so unique facilities, optimized to accommodate museum exhibits, were incorporated into the new structure.
