Highlights from the Museum am Löwentor in Germany

The Museum am Löwentor in Stuttgart, Baden-Württemberg, is one of the world’s greatest depositories of fossils. The museum was founded in 1985 and, since then, it has built up a vast collection of over 4.1 million fossils and has a 3,500m2 exhibition space, spilt over two levels.

It is organised in chronological order.

This brief article will focus on just a few of the highlights at the museum.
