To Touch the Earth

To Touch the Earth, an exhibition prepared by the Jagiellonian University's Geological Museum

The Huta courtyard was be the venue of an interesting exhibition prepared by the Geological Museum based at the Jagiellonian University Institute of Geological Sciences. Its objective was to make partially sighted and blind visitors familiar with the diversity of the world around us, the world enchanted in stone in the form of fossilised animals, plants or minerals. Trapped like in a “freeze-frame”, such traces of preying organisms at the bottom of old seas and frozen forms of rippling water can be “traced” by touch. Additionally, a specially designed cross-section of a volcano made it easier for the visitors to appreciate its geological structure and the origin of lava.
