13-15 years old Exhibition program "How do you find out?"


 What can the Earth teach you about the past, the present and the future? In Naturalis, you'll come face to face with ancient dinosaur and mammoth skeletons, volcanoes and a mine full of minerals. You'll touch lava, crystals and fossils. After exploring the museum and undergoing a personality test, you'll discover your true nature: are you primarily a mineralogist, a volcanologist, a paleontologist or a glaciologist? As a researcher, you'll find that much can be explained and predicted, but there are still many things we don't know yet.

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

Minerals, ice ages, volcanoes and ancient dinosaurs
