Donate to Collections

Containing over 17,000 objects, the museum collections are continually expanded and enhanced through generous collections donations and financial support. Primarily, Tellus seeks out museum-quality minerals, fossils, and technology materials and library materials from Georgia and the Southeast to preserve Georgia’s geologic history, to provide exceptional exhibits for the community, and to provide research opportunities through the study collection.
