It is tucked away within the Aston Webb Building of the University of Birmingham campus in Edgbaston, just a few minutes trundle from University railway station.
There are two ways to get in, either through the main Aston Webb Building where you have to go down a flight of stairs or from the outside far more accessible entrance all on the flat.
Entry is free. The fossils, rocks and minerals are attractively displayed, explanations are easy to read and there is plenty of space between them. The exhibition is laid out over two floors and there is lift access between them. There are a few interactive exhibits, and a section aimed at younger visitors explaining the work of a geologist.
There is a wheelchair accessible toilet on the lower floor with a bifold door, which is very difficult to close for those with dexterity issues. That said, the facility is clean, uncluttered and quite spacious.
It’s a great way to spend a couple of hours learning about the local geology .
