Housed inside a stately French building constructed at the beginning of the 20th century, the Geological Museum displays thousands of rocks and minerals. Sketchy blurbs provide basic information for the geo-novice. Multicolored maps, which look like works of art, offer a visual glimpse of Vietnam's complex geological history and resource makeup. Samplings of fossils, ores and gemstones provide students and researchers with an extensive array of practical material. Rubies, Vietnam's most abundant gem stone, can be bought for a small price at a shop next door to the museum.
