The Geology Education Museum, established in 1948, is located on the University of KwaZulu Natal - Westville Campus as part of the Science and Technology Education Centre. GEM is the only geological museum in KwaZulu-Natal. The museum provides a series of displays pertaining to the high school syllabus, ranging from basic introduction to minerals and rocks, to Economic Geology and Palaeontology. Visitors to the Museum have "hands-on" contact with minerals and rocks, look down microscopes and sort fossils.
