At Naturalis we manage the largest meteorite collection in the Netherlands, including some unique specimens. This diverse collection includes meteorites gathered around the world. In the Netherlands 6 meteorites have been recovered after an impact. Our collection includes 3 of these meteorites, the Glanerbrug meteorite, the Diepenveen meteorite and the Broek in Waterland meteorite. Naturalis has been formally recognized by the Meteoritical Society as a meteorite institute and much research is being done on this collection. Analyzes of meteorites provide evidence of the origin of the Solar System and life on Earth. The entire collection is digitally available and supplemented with photographs of the meteorites.
