GEOLOGICAL SERVICES. CLASSROOM AND MUSEUM

Alongside the exhibition of these knowledgeable elements and the private collections, the geological project aims to become an aliving classroom where citizens can interact to the learning of geology. It is also a leisure exhibition centre and citizen participation for science education, where created to help students, schoolboys and girls, increasing their knowledge of geology and gain understanding.

At the same time its educational functions, the classroom also offers among its services, technical and geo-consulting advice concerning geological issues, geotechnical, geohazard, minerals and ornamental rocks (art-stones) and technical geotours.

It is also pretended that the geo-classroom will be expanding with the advance of the geo-exhibition, renewing contents according to citizen’s demand. We are keen to hear from you, participation of ideas, meeting of friends, and sharing thoughts of scientific discussion or topics.

Check out our planned activities for the incoming months. Would you lose it?

Organization of geological excursions and nature tours. Geotours

We focuse our professional excellence in excursions to natural sites and geotours. Malaga province is an area with particular high heritage in natural sites the majority of them with an outstanding value of theirs resources. We make a practical visit and technical explanations on site regarding geological features of the relief, faults, folding and origin of our montains, using of geological compass, minerals and rocks collecting, and hiking in conjunction with a beautiful time to share spending our time in friendship and amazing activities.

Excursions are focused to a wide range of clients; childrens from 9 to 12 years old,  and adults of all ages. Groups or technical geotours with particular mention to specific sites are also available (Mineralogical tours, Petrological or natural tours).

It is guided by monitors and controlled the site activities; collection of samples, minerals and rocks in quarries or adits dumping places, geological explanations and guidances, geological and mining data compilation, inventory of points of geological interest (LIG), mining activities and photo report.

The routes are prepared in advance with the recommendations and safety warnings appropriate to the geotour. Geotours and natural routes are performed weekly every Sunday, or Monday by appointments (Schools, Institutes and Associations). Prices available.

Creative workshops, Geo-discussions and forums related to local issues; mineralogy, geology, palaeontology, museum, mining heritage, archaeology and general science.

The purpose of these workshops is to put in place the extraordinary value of our natural local resources through the spreading of geological science knowledge. A practical exercise, either on site or at the exhibition, to those aspects related to geological features of our region, an outstanding issues, which need the support of scientist works and the geological community.

Creation of the Exhibition Friends Association

Our asset and vision cover the entire disciplines which help the friends of science. We will have a set of cultural activities related to meeting points, exchange of knowledge, ideas and impressions on the basis of common interests (formation of groups interested in specific topics, lectures, excursions blog, geological and mining heritage, mineralogical news, reporting, editions of papers, magazines, trade shows, donations, etc. )
