Oscar E. Monnig Meteorite Gallery
On the Texas Christian University campus, find the Oscar E. Monnig Meteorite Collection in the Sid Richardson Science Building and marvel at the impressive collection of these ancient rocks. The collection contains 1700 meteorites and displays the most remarkable 10% in the Gallery.
Interactive experiences with the meteorites are available, such as holding "a piece of the solar system in your hand" and "creating your own terrestrial impact crater."
The information provided in the Gallery's exhibits also helps you learn how to identify meteorites and unlock many of their mysteries, i.e. where they came from, how they reached earth, and what they can tell us about the solar system.
