The Black Geomuseum

Dive into an exciting world of geology at The Black Geomuseum in Gedser. Discover a unique exhibition of local and global geological finds, including rare fossils, rocks, minerals and amber.

Welcome to The Black Geomuseum: A World Below the Surface

Our collection includes examples of fossils and rocks from around the world, and the exhibitions are structured to give visitors a good insight into geological time periods.

Explore our themed exhibitions, including fossils found locally on the coast of Falster and the Baltic Sea area, as well as rocks and minerals from Greenland and the enigmatic flint. The local geological exhibition shows fossils and stones that have been brought to Falster either by the sea or by ice ages pushing the stones over great distances. Particularly noteworthy are the many fossils and stones with animal footprints from Sweden and Norway.

The museum's extensive geological collection includes a 2-billion-year-old rock, a 35-million-year-old petrified tree trunk from Egypt, colourful minerals from around the world and a beautiful garnet from India called the ‘North Star’. The exhibitions are complemented by five short films about Gedser Odde, fossils, volcanoes, flint and amber.

Children are very welcome at The Black Geomuseum and there are always small tasks for them, such as painting on rocks, drawing and quizzes. Visit our Geo Shop where you can buy colourful rocks, fossils and books on geology. You can also try your luck in our geo fish pond. Be mesmerised by our fascinating world below the surface!
