Earth Exploitation

With new territories explored and the world’s new industrialization, the exploitation of the Earth changed the face of the Planet. As reminders, the Museum shows an oil company shares certificate, a gold weighing scale from South Africa, miner’s lamps from the 1930s, and Akan Ashanti weights. An exclusive mix-media frame called “Once Upon a Forest” of prints signed by real Amazon rainforest Chief Raoni, artist Roger Dean, film director James Cameron, and actor Wes Studi shows together the powerful truth behind the Avatar movies.

Some of the oldest fossils in the world with 300 to 400 million year old Horseshoe Crabs, Ammonites, Orthoceras, Armored Fish, Eurypterus Sea Scorpions and more.
