The expositions of the Hall are devoted to the internal structure of Earth and methods of its study, endogenous geological processes occurring in the depths, and exogenous ones which form the surface relief.

Presented samples reflect the activity of underground and surface waters, as well as of living organisms, weathering processes, tectonic movements of crustal blocks, and volcanism.

Particular attention should be paid to the core samples of the Kola superdeep well, which has fundamental scientific importance, as well as to ferromanganese nodules that emerge on the bottom of lakes, seas, oceans and are an alternative source of iron and manganese with significant industrial potential.
