Spectacular Phenomena and Treasures

The three levels of the public exhibition structure are dedicated to various themes which range from the formation of the Earth and the processes operating within the Earth to the treasures of the Earth’s crust and the surface which act as archives of Earth’s history. Each exhibition level displays the relationship to the region by depicting the natural phenomena in relation to our daily lives.
