Oxfordshire is blessed with many fine museums and a good proportion of them hold significant geological collections. Oxford Geology Group recognises the importance of these collections and their invaluable contribution to the county's geodiversity and is currently developing webpages to showcase the richness of collections throughout the shire and to promote our wonderful museums.
