Identification Day

Bone or tooth? Bug or beetle? Biology
Bring us your discoveries – we will tell you
what they are.
3 – 5 p.m.
Free admission

Did you find a bone and do not know which animal it once belonged to? Have you had a beautiful stone on the dresser for a long time and you want to know where it came from and how valuable it is? Whether stone, beetle, spider or bone: bring us the finds that you made on your walk or hike. Our experts will take a close look and tell you what you are holding in your hands.

Once a year our biologists take care of your finds directly at the museum, the other time our geologists are present. Have you found a bird feather and want to have it determined outside of the identification days? No problem. Even if our experts in charge are not on site, you may always bring us your find. We collect it and contact you as soon as the expert has dealt with it.
