Meteorites can provide us with important information about the structure of our planet and the solar system. The Mineralogical State Collection Munich has acquired a great deal of expertise in recent years. In scientific exchange with scientists from Germany and abroad, the Mineralogische Staatsammlung München is involved in various projects. In this way, meteorites from Mars and the moon are also studied. In addition to the research activities, meteorites also form an important part in the permanent and special exhibitions of the Museum Mineralogia Munich. Furthermore, the topic is treated in guided tours and children’s programs to explain to children and youngsters also the structure of our earth and our solar system.
