This interview originally aired on "In the Moment" on SDPB Radio.

We explore 100 years of history with the Museum of Geology. The museum first opened to the public in 1923, but its history stretches back to 1885.

And the items in its collection are much, much older.

Kayleigh Johnson is the assistant director of the Museum of Geology at South Dakota Mines. She joins us to talk about the museum's century of science.

Plus, she shares which specimen in the collection is her personal favorite.
