A unique meteorite as a gift

May we introduce? Tafassasset, the latest acquisition for our meteorite collection. From now on you can visit the extraterrestrial rock, which was found in the Ténéré desert (Niger), in display case 55 in Room V. This special object was donated to the NHM Vienna by the finder Bernard Dejonghe.

Mammoths at the Museum

Explore the remains of woolly mammoths from the Ice Age. How do the researchers in the museum know how mammoths have looked like, how big they were and what they have eaten? And can you bring mammoths back to life? IN GERMAN
