Description

Exhibition

The scientific collection of the museum Joanneum in Graz includes botany, geology, paleontology and mineralogy. The range of specimens on display form an educational and inspiring role for visitors. The collection's basis descends from the original collection of the museum's founder archduke Johann. In Graz the exhibits find the perfect conditions to be stored and they get treated with the latest technology at the laboratory. After the reconstruction in 2013 the museum's display is groundbreaking.

 

It shows photography of the original collection and gives an insight in the area's history of earth over 400 Million years ago. Exhibits represent flora and fauna and permanent exhibitions cover scientific topics and ecological issues.
