Planet Origins

The Earth Gallery is the next space within the Museum of Nature. It examines the building blocks of the planet, rocks, minerals, gems, and essential forces that makes the Earth tick.


A piece of the Moon, brought back in the last manned mission to our satellite, is here.


Panels examine the cosmic forces that went into the development of the solar system and our world.


Items here include meteorite fragments.
