The Tianyu Museum of nature is the world's largest collection of dinosaurs and other prehistoric animal fossils.
Tianyu Nature Museum
Located in the west section of Lianhuashan Road, Pingyi County, Linyi City, Shandong Province, Shandong Tianyu natural museum is the largest natural geological museum in the world
And the largest dinosaur museum.
With a total investment of 400 million yuan, the museum was completed and opened in September 2004, with a construction area of 32000 square meters and a display area of 28000 square meters. The museum has a scientific research Museum, a 4D dynamic cinema, 28 exhibition halls and more than 390000 exhibits. More than 1200 dinosaurs and more than 2200 bird fossils are preserved in the museum. The museum has published more than 30 scientific research achievements in science journals such as nature and science.
Since the establishment of the museum, Shandong Tianyu Nature Museum has been named as "Shandong science popularization education base", "Shandong care for the next generation science popularization education base", "China paleontology science popularization education base" and "national AAAA tourist attraction".
Located in Pingyi County, Shandong Province, Shandong Tianyu nature museum was opened in September 2004. In 2007, it was rated as national AAAA tourist attraction. The building area is 32000 square meters.
There are 1106 relatively complete dinosaur fossils preserved in the museum, including the 8-meter-long and 6-meter-high jinshanosaurus, the lovely parrot billed dinosaur, and the representative of the primary stage of evolution from dinosaurs to flying birds - ornithosaurus chinensis.
Tianyu Museum of nature has been recognized as "the largest dinosaur museum in the world" by the British headquarters of Guinness World Records for its 1106 complete dinosaur fossils. As of August 2010, six collections of the museum have won the "World Guinness Award", which is known as "a ten thousand volume book depicting natural life". Tianyu nature museum is considered to be the largest natural geological museum in the world.
The exhibits are mainly mineral specimens and paleontological fossils. In the nine exhibition halls of mineral specimens, there are tens of thousands of rare specimens from all over the world. In 2006, it was named "the Xinjiang tourmaline" by the "mineral gem specimen" magazine in 2006. It combines the essence of heaven and earth into an organic whole. It has a glitzy color for the world. The silicified wood produced in Xinjiang Qitai is 38 meters long. It is the world's largest. In September 2007, it was recorded in the "Guinness" world record. The Amethyst cave from Uruguay is 3.3 meters high and weighs 3.7 tons. Donghai, Jiangsu Province, the hometown of national crystal, is the largest single crystal in Asia with a weight of 338 The 6-carat diamond is the largest extra large diamond ever produced in China. It weighs 179.82 carats more than the so-called "Changlin diamond" (158.78 carats) in China. It is emerald and glittering. In the world's largest exhibition hall of gypsum specimens, all kinds of transparent gypsum are crystal clear and dazzling. Entering the world's largest exhibition hall of stalactites is like walking away Into the dream world, people daydream infinite.
In the six exhibition halls of "Guizhou Guanling biota", there are nearly 10000 fossil specimens of ichthyosaurs, Guizhou dragons, chaetodons, thalosaurs and crinoids from the Triassic strata, ranging from 18 meter long ichthyosaurs to less than half meter long ichthyosaurs, showing the biodiversity and complexity of the Triassic era.
Among the seven exhibition halls of "Jehol Biota", there are nearly 200 parrot billed dinosaur fossils in dinosaur exhibition hall. Among them, the stomach stones preserved in the stomach of ornithosaur fossils and the fossils formed by food at that time are of high ornamental and scientific value. "Ten thousand fish hall" displays more than 100, 000 fossils of different kinds of fish from 120 million years ago, which is unique in the world. Thousands of feathered dinosaur and bird fossils are rarely seen in other museums in the world, which provides a detailed physical example for people to study the extinction of dinosaurs and the origin of birds.
There are nearly a thousand deer and rhinoceros fossils in the "Shanwang biota" stratum in our museum. We can see all kinds of carnivore fossils, insects and plant fossils rarely seen in other museums. Seeing these fossils is like reading an endless "ten thousand volume book", which makes people linger and forget to return.
The hall mainly displays the fossils of Mesozoic dinosaurs. Dinosaurs appeared in the Triassic period, flourished in the Jurassic period, and died out in the Cretaceous period. Due to the warm and humid climate of the Mesozoic era, the four seasons are like spring, and plants grow everywhere, so it is very suitable for reptiles to survive. In particular, all kinds of dinosaurs rapidly proliferated and differentiated all over the world, with thousands of species, controlling the sea, land and air habitats at that time, dominating the earth for 150 million years. Dinosaurs are one of the most successful animal species on earth. The museum has a collection of 8-meter-long and 6-meter-high jinshanosaurus, a lovely parrot billed dinosaur, a representative of the primary stage of evolution from dinosaurs to flying birds, the Chinese ornithosaurus, and the world's first beaked bird, the sage Confucius bird. In addition, we also showed the audience thousands of dinosaur egg fossils in different shapes. The display of dinosaur fossils is of great significance not only to the study of the origin of birds, but also to the study of the physiology, ecology and evolution of dinosaurs.
The hall can help people understand the evolution of long nosed, artiodactyls and odd hoofed animals. Mammals are evolved from quasi mammals. When dinosaurs dominated the earth, the earliest mammals appeared. In order to avoid dinosaurs, these animals came out at night. After the extinction of dinosaurs, these mammals multiplied rapidly and evolved into different species.
In the exhibition hall, you can enjoy the restoration pictures of a large elephant family and various animals, as well as the skeleton fossils of animals, including the 8-meter-long and 5-meter-high Saber Toothed elephant, the complete shovel toothed elephant, and the upper tooth fossils of real mammoths.
About 480 million years ago, a strange animal appeared in the ocean. The shape is like a budding lotus and a blooming lily, but it is not a plant, but a marine animal, which is called "excellent ancestors of the earth" by paleontologists. There are more than 700 species living in the modern ocean, which is one of the most ornamental species of fossils. After the death of the crinoids, their posture can be completely preserved and become fossils. Because of the harsh environment, the fossils are very precious. They provide important evidence for the study of the Paleoenvironment in the geological and historical period, and gradually become the treasures of fossil collectors, and even used as handicrafts.
Rehe fish Hall
The hall displays a lot of very precious fish fossils to let us know about fish. Fish first appeared in the Cambrian, and from the Mesozoic era, teleost was more prosperous than chondrichthys. For example, the Chinese sturgeon, the treasure of the Yangtze River. They can survive for a long time without water. In addition, there are more than 100000 large fish plate fossils of wolf fin fish. Wolffin is one of the three representative members in the early study of Jehol biota.
Mineral crystal Hall
The museum has a collection of more than 3000 minerals, mainly including primary gem grade minerals such as diamond, emerald, aquamarine, tourmaline, amethyst, topaz, agate, etc. it also displays colored and colorless primary mineral specimens, etc. it is really a complete variety, rich and colorful, dazzling, providing a good activity park for more geological research and enthusiasts Science education, exploring the origin of life, also provides full and accurate information and places for scientific research institutions.
The butterflies on display here include butterflies that grow in high and cold places 2500-5000 meters above sea level, such as Tianshan Mountain in Xinjiang and Changbai Mountain in Northeast China. Their wings are as thin as silk. In addition, it also displays the mimicry insects, such as the dead leaf butterfly, the purple spot butterfly, the emerald butterfly, the overlord butterfly, as well as the precious butterfly varieties from Southeast Asia, Japan, Malaysia, Thailand and other places. Lifelike and colorful butterflies are like colorful flowers, bringing you to the beautiful nature.
At the invitation of the museum on May 8, 2008, Professor Dong Zhiming, researcher of Institute of Vertebrate Paleontology and Paleoanthropology, Chinese Academy of Sciences, Professor Chen Piji, researcher of Nanjing Institute of Geology and paleontology, Chinese Academy of Sciences, Professor Hou Lianhai, researcher of Institute of Vertebrate Paleontology and Paleoanthropology, Chinese Academy of Sciences, and Professor Hou Lianhai, researcher of Institute of Vertebrate Paleontology and Paleoanthropology, Chinese Academy of Sciences, were invited Dr. Xu Xing, researcher of Institute of anthropology, Dr. you Hailu, researcher of Institute of geology, Chinese Academy of Geological Sciences, Prof. Wu Shunqing, researcher of Nanjing Institute of Geology and paleontology, Chinese Academy of Sciences, and Dr. Huang DIYing, associate researcher of Nanjing Institute of Geology and paleontology, Chinese Academy of Sciences, all came to the museum for inspection and guidance. Curator Zheng Xiaoting held talks with them. They put forward a lot of valuable opinions on the museum's fossil research and future foreign exchanges, and said that they would use their resources to create more opportunities for the Tianyu nature museum in the future. Later, accompanied by curator Zheng Xiaoting, they focused on the precious fossils collected in the scientific research building of the museum. They agreed that the rich collection of Tianyu Nature Museum has preserved unparalleled spiritual wealth for the Chinese people and even the people of the world, provided the best scientific research platform for researchers and explorers, and made contributions to the world paleontology
