Glittering New Home for Mineral and Gem Collection Opens at the Carnegie Natural History Museum

January 29th, 2008

About the Hillman Hall at the Carnegie Museum of Natural History

Hillman Hall was closed in early 2006 and most of its collection was taken off of public view for the expansion and renovation project. By August 2007, The Wertz Gallery and Hillman Hall was outfitted with new display cases, new lights, new specimens as well as a dramatic new entranceway. Approximately 500 gems, crystals, jewelry and other pieces of gem art are displayed in the permanent collection. In addition, the gallery will also host special temporary and traveling exhibits from collectors around the world.
