Hold a piece of Mars in your hand.
At the Monnig Meteorite Gallery, you can experience pieces of the Solar System up close and explore the mysteries of meteorites! Meteorites are the oldest materials known — older than any rock formed on Earth! Learn how to identify a meteorite, enjoy a hands-on encounter with different types of meteorites, and create your own terrestrial impact crater. For an “out-of-this-world” experience, bring your friends and family to get acquainted with our spectacular visitors from space. For directions and opening hours, please go to our visitor information page.
