This directory provides information about those museums in the country which are of interest for their geological services. It covers museums throughout the country, including the Channel Islands, as well as the major institutions in the Irish Republic. University museums are excluded, except where the general public are admitted.

The directory lists museums by region and covers such diverse topics as collections, displays, publications, history and staff. It provides essential information about museum opening times, addresses, telephone and fax numbers.

"Because Britain and Ireland had an important role in the historical development of geology as a subject of academic and popular interest, we have more than a hundred public museums, with excellent geological collections. Amazingly, until now, there has been no directory of them. I hope this publication will help to stimulate public interest and awareness."
D. Palmer, New Scientist, July 1994.
