Many varieties of plant, marine and wildlife fossils are on view in the Fossil Room.

  • The room is also home to one of the best petrified wood displays in New Jersey, with several cut and polished slabs nearly four feet in diameter.
  • Other highlights include fossil fish, a wide variety of fossil shells (ammonites, belemnites, brachiopods, and more), dinosaur eggs, worm tubes, and fossil teeth of such animals as camels, cave bears, mastodons, and rhinoceroses.
