We look forward to welcoming you to the opening of our special exhibition AMMONITE MASTERPIECES on 16 May 2024 at the Dinosaur Museum Altmühltal, Dinopark 1, 85095 Denkendorf.

We love dinosaurs – but that‘s not all! While the previous stars of the Dinosaur Museum dominated the land, the world‘s oceans were populated by an almost unimaginable abundance of ammonites.

After years of research, we have succeeded in bringing together over 120 of the world‘s most beautiful specimens. On the opening night, we will also be introducing AMMONITE MASTERPIECES, a large-format, 400-page book, which showcases the fascination and beauty of this famous group of fossils.
