The Story of Planet Earth

The visitor will be acquainted with the most important "happenings" on Planet Earth including the Big Bang, the emergence from the "fog" and the several warming and cooling periods of the earth. Exhibited is also the largest meteorite ever seen in the Czech Republic. It weighs 250 kg and it is called Muomionalusta. It is estimated that it was a part of an even larger meteorite that fell from the sky about 900,000 years ago and it is probably the oldest meteorite known to man.

Come Along Into The Cave!

During the last 30 years many new caves have been discovered in the Czech Republic and elsewhere. The exhibition tries to acquaint the public with the history of cave exploring and the methods used by the speleologists. It also marks the anniversary of discovering the largest cave in the Czech lands. There is also an abstract model of a cave for children to explore. This exhibition as well as the Story of Planet Earth will be open indefinitely.
