During my Canada Day visit, I stopped in at all but one of the galleries in the Museum of Nature- I knew the fossils gallery would be far too busy- but photographed in just two. The Earth Gallery covers rocks, minerals, crystals, and those forces that make the world work. There are extensive display cases here with examples of rocks, as well as before and after versions of what can be done with minerals or crystals. I have had an aunt of mine in here- she was completely taken with the place, and we were easily in here more than an hour.
There is an extensive area covering volcanoes and earthquakes around the world, complete with samples and interactive activities.
One of the interactive activities is a global map that can be shifted in setting or focused in on a given area. You can also shift the time, from a day to a month, to get a look at where notable seismic events have taken place in that period. This first screen is the previous week's worth of activity, while the second is the previous 24 hours. Each dot, in green or purple, designates an epicenter.
Here are more of those displayed minerals and crystals.
