Where do the museum objects come from? What do they bring to science? What new insights do they bring for the future?

Ask your questions directly to the scientist or expert at the Profi-Talk. The Profi-Talk focuses on geology. Bring minerals or fossils that you have found and would like to learn more about. Or get hands-on and carve a fossil out of the rock yourself.
