Fossils and rocks from Orkney and beyond, housed in 19th century farm buildings including fossils of strange and now-extinct fish which lived in Lake Orcadie 385 million years ago, illustrations which bring to life the fish and the world they inhabited, a timeline to convey the immense timescale in which planets are born, rocks and fossils form, whole continents move and an exploration of Orkney geology, the rocks of Orkney and how the landscape we see today was formed.

In the New Earth Gallery, there is also a dinosaur display with a small selection of fossils and facts about these amazing beasts and check out the glow room which uses UV light to display fluorescent rocks in colours not visible to the naked eye.

There is also a cafe and gift shop at the Fossil and Heritage Centre.
