Social Event

This year the participants of AMAA will have a great chance to visit the Natural History Museum which will open in the evening exclusively for us.

The National History Museum in Berlin exhibits more than 30 million zoological, paleontological, and mineralogical specimens, including more than ten thousand type specimens. It is famous for the largest mounted dinosaur in the world (a Giraffatitan skeleton), and a well-preserved specimen of the earliest known bird, Archaeopteryx. The collections are so extensive that less than 1 in 5000 specimens is exhibited, and they attract researchers from around the world. Additional exhibits include a mineral collection representing 75% of the minerals in the world, a large meteor collection, the largest piece of amber in the world; exhibits of the now-extinct quagga, huia, and tasmanian tiger, and "Bobby" the gorilla, a Berlin Zoo celebrity from the 1920s and 1930s.

The "Night at the Museum" will start at 18:30 on September 11th and will be continued with a dinner.
