MUSEUM MINERALS, ROCKS AND FOSSILS OF VALSECA

Located in its beginnings in the premises of the Municipal Library and currently in the Socio-cultural Center Doctor Velasco, this museum has half a thousand exhibits, among which are fossils and rocks from the province of Segovia. This museum was opened in 1997 thanks to a deposit agreement between Valseca City Council and Andrés Díez Herrero, who donated his private collection (with some 900 pieces). Subsequently, the museum has received other contributions from individuals, such as those of the Ibáñez couple or the stonework tools of D. Pedro de Frutos.

The Association of Amateurs of Mineralogy (ASAM) and more recently the Geology Association of Segovia (GSg), are in charge of scientific maintenance and the different didactic-exhibition improvements. A few years ago an agreement was signed between the Diputación de Segovia and the City Council of Valseca for the modernization of the Museum through the installation of multimedia elements and new exhibition modules.
