29.03. - 01.04. Egg exhibition in the Ludwigslust Natureum directly at Ludwigslust Castle, 10.00 - 16.00 hrs.
Bird eggs, dinosaur eggs, rare egg cup collection and other egg rarities
In keeping with tradition, the Natureum at Ludwigslust Castle will once again be hosting an egg exhibition with numerous special features at Easter 2024. The exhibition will be open from Good Friday to Easter Monday from 10.00 am to 4.00 pm.
The Naturforschende Gesellschaft Mecklenburg e.V. (NGM) would like to draw attention to the diversity of eggs in nature. Numerous eggs of native birds are on display in this exhibition, from the small bearded tit to the greylag goose. There are also eggs from the three largest birds in the world: ostrich, nandu (including the rare Darwin's nandu) and emu. But not only birds lay eggs. This is vividly illustrated by an absolute rarity from the realm of insects. Egg clutches of other animals and much more can be seen in several display cases.
Another highlight is the fossilized egg of a Hadrosaurus, which lived on our planet 120 million years ago. "Stone eggs" may look like eggs, but they are not. They were formed this way by the melting glacial water of the Ice Age in whirlpools. An extensive collection of these stone eggs will be on display.
Not entirely biological, but no less interesting is a collection of around 200 different egg cups, some of which are historical.
