New Vale Earth Gallery opens at Museum of Nature

The Canadian Museum of Nature‘s newly renovated Vale Earth Gallery boasts 8,000 square feet of geological wonders. Long known for its world-class collection of rocks and minerals, the museum also offers several interactive games and simulations. Guests are invited to explore a limestone cave — complete with stalactites, stalagmites, and trickling water — and to look inside a smartphone to see what minerals are used in its manufacturing process. Round out your visit by building a volcano, creating an earthquake, and cooling magma to make granite.

Admission $12; Seniors and Students (13+): $10; Children: $8; Tiny Tots (under 2): Free.
