The Australian Fossil and Mineral Museum situated in the heart of Bathurst is housed in the refurbished 1876 Public School building.
It is one of the most spectacular fossil and mineral collections in the world.

Now permanently on show at the museum is
the Somerville Collection - some of the finest and rarest examples of minerals and fossils
A major star of the collection and the exhibition, is a 10 metre long Tyrannosaurus Rex -  the only one in the country.  Plus there are several dinosaur eggs, a 40 million-year old lizard caught in amber and rare minerals.

All part of this collection which has been given to the people of NSW by Warren Somerville.
{Professor Warren Somerville AM collector and donator of the Somerville Collection.]

Close to 2,000 fossil and mineral specimens are displayed in two main exhibitions - the Fossil Gallery and the Minerals Gallery.


The Australian Fossil and Mineral Museum, which houses the Somerville Collection, complements the growing number of first-class regional cultural facilities such as the Age of Fishes Museum in nearby Canowindra.
