I never saw the relief map, but I visited the mineral museum several times while it was still in the FB. Not too long ago it suffered a robbery in its present location, thieves stealing some gold nuggets when the price topped $1000/oz. I haven't heard that the missing pieces were recovered. I believe an inside job was suspected.

Another bad day for the FB was October 17, 1989. The Loma Prieta earthquake bent its flagpole!
