Opening of the New ISRIC World Soil Museum

Join us in celebrating the opening of the New World Soil Museum

During the last couple of months we have been witnessing an exciting development: the construction of a brand-new building for the ISRIC World Soil Museum on the campus of Wageningen University and Research (WUR). On 250 square meters it will be housing ISRIC’s unique soil monolith collection. And more than that: visitors can experience the role of soils in life and ecosystems, and get an impression of the enormous variation of soil types around the world, from the colourful Indonesian volcanic ash soil to the man-made Terra Preta soil from the Amazon.more
