Dreams of Space

Before the space conquest, many had dreamed of going to the Moon, but Jules Verne and Hergé are probably the two most high-profile ones. An 1874 US first edition of “From the Earth to the Moon” signed by Apollo astronauts Michael Collins and Frank Borman, and a “Tintin & Snowy” original drawing by Hergé next to a model of the iconic red & white rocket (made of recycled material in Madagascar) embody the spirit of those two visionaries.

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.
