Museu Geológico (Geological Museum) has began to be organized by 1859 with the items assembled during the works of the Geological Commissions and later on of the Portuguese Geological Survey and The Geological Mining Institute.

Its samples (fossils, rocks, minerals and archaeologic objects) are open to the national and international scientific community.

Museu Geológico is located at the very place of birth of the Portuguese Geology and Archaeology which gives it an unique value in the history of the national science.

The exhibition furniture and the inside architecture of the building all strongly reflect the XIX century type of museology. This is rare in Europe nowadays and has led experts to consider it as a "Museum of Museums".
