University of Tartu Natural History Museum
“The Dangers and Benefits of Mining”


An exhibition about the treasures and danger hidden in our earth. We talk about such controversial resources as mercury, asbestos, phosphorite, oil shale, and others. Some of these the visitors can touch, but the more dangerous have been put behind bars for your safety. Aimed at both old and young, the exhibition offers both joy of discovery as well as recognition in terms of our everyday lives.
