Meteorites

Our meteorite display showcases five examples of fascinating space travelers. Get an up-close look at their composition and find out what makes each one special. Specimens include fragments of the Chelyabinsk meteorite, which dramatically exploded over Russia in 2013, as well as a meteorite nearly 4.6 billion years old - older than the Earth itself!

 

This display was made possible through a legacy donation of the Eugene Mineral Club.
