The oldest parts of the collections at the ‘Mainz Natural History Museum/State Collection of Natural History of Rhineland-Palatinate’ date back to the year 1834 and had been assembled by the ‘Rheinische Naturforschende Gesellschaft’ (RNG). Unfortunately, major parts of these old collections were destroyed during a British air raid in 1945.
