ISRIC World Soil Museum

In the World Soil Museum of ISRIC, visitors can learn about the role of soils in life and ecosystems and get an impression of the enormous variation of soil types in the world, from the colourful volcanic ash soil from Indonesia to the man-made Terra Preta soil from the Amazon.

The museum displays soil monoliths –undisturbed soil cores- with accompanying data. Information panels and a digital map table provide information on soils and their role in major global themes.
