The Geology Museum or Bao Tang Dia Chat narrates the story of the geologic processes. Most of the explanations here are in Vietnamese though. This museum is housed inside a beautiful French building that was constructed in early 20th century. The museum displays endless rocks and minerals kept on display. There are also sketchy blurbs that offer basic details for the geo-novice visitors. Moreover, the museum offers multicolored maps which look similar to works of art, offering visual glimpse of the complex geological history and resource lifestyle of Vietnam.
Further, there are also display of samplings of ores, gemstones and fossils offering students other than researchers an insight of the extensive collection of practical materials. Many can see rubies too, which are the most abundant gem stone in Vietnam and can be bought at the shop for a reasonable price right next door to the museum.
