12–13 years old Exhibition program "Animals through time"

Animals through the ages

Sponges, cnidaria, mollusks, worms, arthropods, echinoderms and vertebrates have been alive through the ages. At Naturalis, you'll learn how to classify animals and find out why this is useful. Journey across time past animals of the modern era, Ice age giants and dinosaurs and investigate fossils from the dino era, animal hides, shells and much more. Gather as many animals for classification as you can!

At this time, our programs are offered in Dutch only.
