The mineralogical galleries present a systematic display of meteorites, minerals and gemstones. The galleries also house the historic Blaschka glass models of plants, popularly known as the Glass Flowers. In addition, a series of changing exhibitions bring focus to new research at the University. Current exhibitions include The Language of Color, on how animals communicate with color, and Mollusks: Shelled Masters of the Marine Realm (through Feb 2014), and New England Forests."
