Dear guests,

the Natural History Collections of the the Museum Wiesbaden will thank you for your last visit. More than 63,000 visitors had a close look at the "Ice Age".
From Dezember 15 you can travel to North America and discover the animals and native people. This continent is exceptionally shown in a European exhibition, not least of the lack of Nearctic collections (European explorers in North America had forgotten their homeland).
This temporary exhibition will be presented in collaboration with Dieter Luksch and Heinz Bründl and will treat four typical bioms with their fauna: mountains, forests, prairie and southern deserts. In addition we can show you parts of the extensive Indian collection of Mr. Bründl (from Munich), who has collect numerous artefacts from North America.
