Terrestrische Paläoklimatologie

Stratigraphic Hall

Under the Swabian Medusenhaupt, an enormous sea-lily colony from the Posidoniashale-formation of Ohmenhausen near Reutlingen (approximately 183 million years old), a large collection of fossils of all earth ages is displayed in stratigraphic succession.

The presentation shows the most important steps of evolution over the last 500 million years.

The special character of this room is due to natural cabinetry from the 19th Century, which highlights the historical showcase in collection cabinets made of oak.
