The Natural History Museum in Mainz contains valuable collections from contemporary and prehistoric times.
Alongside exhibits from the animal and plant worlds of today, you'll find a wide range of natural history discoveries made in Rhineland-Palatinate. Don't miss the ice age animals collection or the Propalaeotherium dating back 44 million years that was recovered from the Eckfeld crater lake. The Natural History Museum has three examples of this extinct predecessor of the zebra out of only 23 preserved remains worldwide – more than any other museum.
