Prehistoric Horse 2.0 - Icon of the Eocene
August 17, 2021 - January 23, 2022
Current opening hours: Tuesday and Friday, 10-17 h
What might the original horse have looked like? Was its coat spotted or striped? How did the smaller, forest-dwelling relative of our modern horses move? The special exhibition "Urpferd 2.0" gets to the bottom of these questions. The show, which includes original fossils and virtual reconstructions, is on display at the Geological-Paleontological Museum in Hamburg until January 23, 2022. Afterwards, the special exhibition will move to our LIB location in Bonn, to the Museum Koenig.

The special exhibition "Urpferd 2.0" - on loan from the Hessisches Landesmuseum Darmstadt - complements the special exhibition "Eocene - At the Beginning of Our World," which is being presented in parallel at the Zoological Museum in Hamburg until January 23, 2022. The exhibition on the Eocene is a journey back in time to the history of the Earth 56 to 34 million years ago. During this time, ten million years after the extinction of the dinosaurs, mammals and birds once again achieved enormous biodiversity in a world in which southern Germany was covered by a paratropical forest.
