Museum of the Year 2017 finalist

Part of the University of Birmingham, Lapworth is one of the UK's principal geological museums and was an Art Fund Museum of the Year finalist in 2017.

The Lapworth Museum of Geology is one of the principal geological museums in the UK and has the largest and finest geological collection in the Midlands. The collections contain over 250,000 specimens covering most aspects of the geological sciences, including palaeontology, mineralogy and petrology. In addition, there are also important collections of scientific instruments, geological models, zoology, archaeology, and one of the most extensive and important geological archives in the UK.

The museum dates back to 1880 and the foundation of Mason College, the forerunner of the University of Birmingham, and is based in the original grade II* listed Aston Webb building. The collections also include significant material from many influential geologists, scientists and collectors of the 19th and early 20th centuries, including geological pioneer Charles Lapworth, after whom the museum is named.

The museum has a key role in engaging people with diverse set of themes, such as fossils, dinosaurs, evolution, volcanoes, earthquakes, natural hazards, natural resources, evolution, and environmental change.

It has newly re-opened following a £2.7m redevelopment, made possible thanks to a Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF) grant of £1.5m and the generous support of University of Birmingham alumni, as well as a number of grant awarding bodies, trusts and foundations.

It was shortlisted for Art Fund Museum of the Year 2017.
