Natural History Museum, Mainz

Natural History Museum, Mainz

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.

Opening times:

Tuesday 10am-8pm, Wednesday 10am-2pm, Thursday-Sunday 10am-5pm

Events

Rhineland-Palatinate's Summer of Culture takes place every year from 1 May to 3 October and features well over 200 projects covering all kinds of different cultural aspects. The theme is revised annually to reflect new focuses for the content, and the venue for the grand opening also changes every year. A large cultural festival on the first weekend in May offers families their first peek at the summer's programme of events.

The Summer of Culture is extremely wide-reaching in its scope, with events held across the state covering cultural, religious, artistic and social themes. In early 1992 the Rhineland-Palatinate state government announced the staging of the first Rhineland-Palatinate Summer of Culture, the aim of which was to increase people's awareness of the region's attractive cultural programme. Rural areas were particularly targeted in the hope of stimulating people's interest and of spreading pleasure in art and culture, in discussion and debate. What the organisers had – and continue to have – in mind was a sort of 'citizens' movement for culture'. And the Summer of Culture is, in fact, characterised by the large number of small projects and ideas at its core that were themselves developed out of local or regional initiatives. With almost 250 events including concerts, readings, exhibitions, children's activities, theatre and much more, the festival is a marvellous melting pot of people and ideas.
