Splendid visit to the Museu de Ciències Naturals (Natural History Museum) of Barcelona

The last 30th November the Barcelona SGA Student Chapter visited the Natural History Museum (Museu de Ciències Naturals – Museu Blau) of Barcelona. The tour was kindly guided by Marc Campeny, member of the Student Chapter, and Yael Díaz, both curators of this Museum.

The Natural History Museum, founded 132 years ago, restarted recently in a new building (Museu Blau). The exhibition holds over three million specimens in the fields of mineralogy, petrology, palaeontology, zoology and botany from all over the world.

The attendants enjoyed the event and the interesting explanations by the staff. The visit began with an itinerary through the history of the Earth, from the Precambrian to the present, with the observation of characteristic rocks and fossils of each period. The exhibition ends with about 1000 mineral specimens.

The event concluded with a social dinner, karaoke and party.
