Summer 2018 Hours


Plenty of summer fun to be had at the Rutgers Geology Museum! As Rutgers University reaches the end of another academic year, we would like to congratulate the graduating Class of 2018! Starting on May 15th, 2018, the Rutgers Geology Museum will be transitioning into its summer schedule, and will be operating under different hours than during the academic year.
