Permanent Exhibits

Fossil Gallery featuring the Bruce Danz Collection

One of the best dinosaur nests in any exhibit. Find a life-size skull replica of Stan, the Tyrannosaurus rex, a thigh bone of a duck-bill dinosaur that you can touch and a complete Psittacosaurus with stones in its gizzard – just like the birds. 

Explore Minerals and Mines

Walk through a lead-mine tunnel, explore Wisconsin’s mining history, discover how Native Americans mined copper, learn how we use rocks and minerals and marvel at our beautiful minerals. 

Temporary Exhibits

The Weis hosts numerous temporary displays throughout the year. We currently have special cases devoted to mineral spheres from around the world, a fluorite collection from classic Illinois localities and samplings from other newly acquired mineral collections.

Love the Ledge!

This mini exhibit highlights the geology and history of the Niagara Escarpment. It includes a game to see if you can match photos of the ledge to their location. 

Ironing out the History of the Montreal Mine

This mini exhibit of Montreal Mine minerals was assembled by Randy Phillips and the Neville Geology Club. It is dedicated to Gary Richards, a former educator and mineralogist at the Weis, who passed away in 2014.
