Paleontology studies all the organisms which existed during the geological history of the Earth. The simplest, acoelomates, bush-gill, brachiopoda, gasteropods, cephalopods, and arthropoda are represented in the exhibition. Among the simplest, the nomilites from the Crimea are exhibited, among the acoelomates - corals of different shape and colour, among the cephalopods - a slit of a nautilus. The arthropoda are represented by remained imprints of insects and butterflies. The class of fish is represented by imprints of fish of the Jurassic period found on the territory of Greenland, Lion, and Bavaria. The beasts are represented by individual bones, teeth, and jaw of a cave bear. There are also mammoth tusks and teeth in the exhibition that were found in Eppelstein.
