The Geology Museum of Tehran University was registered in the International Committee of Museums and University Collections of UMAC.
According to ISNA, the Geology Museum of Tehran University of Science Campus is one of the 25 university museums in the country, which is registered in UMAC, with a history of about 70 years and with indicators such as valuable samples, variety of rocks, and minerals.
According to the University of Tehran, the Geology Museum of Tehran University is the oldest scientific museum in this field. It dates back to the 1320s. Since the establishment of the field of natural sciences in 1317 at Tehran University with its professors of the time, including the late Dr. Yadollah Sahabi and Dr. Fereydoon Farshad and their colleagues, collected various rock-fossil specimens of Iran and the earth and bought specimens abroad.
They founded this Geology Museum, and since then, the collection of samples by other professors and graduate students of the Faculty of Geology has gradually added to the scientific richness of this exhibition and is constantly being supplemented and increased.
According to ISNA, the German Institute for Academic Exchanges collaborated with three universities in Cologne and the universities of Tehran and Kurdistan in the form of a project entitled “Multilingualism in Iran, a social view of cultural diversity” to transfer students between universities with a budget.
While the Geology Museum of Tehran University is on its way to becoming international and global, this project is currently in the first phase. This project aims to acquaint students with the cultural, social, and educational conditions in Germany and Iran.
As part of this project, students from the Tehran Universities and Kurdistan will travel to Cologne to spend a three-month research stay under the auspices of the University of Cologne.
Getting more and more engaged with the international scientific world will have an impact on tourism.
