Museum of Economic Geology

Museum of Economic Geology .—This small but interesting establishment, having an entrance in Jermyn Street, is a national museum for the exhibition of all such articles as belong to the mineral kingdom.  It was built from the designs of Mr. Pennethorne, and was opened in 1851.  Though less extensive than the British and South Kensington Museums, it is of a very instructive character.  Besides the mineral specimens, raw and manufactured, it contains models, sections, and diagrams, illustrative of mining, metallurgy, and various manufactures.  It is open, free , every day, except Friday.
