Why aren't there any volcanoes in some parts of the world?
Yet plenty in others?
Why do destructive earthquakes frequently strike some regions of the globe?
How do mountains form?
And how will the surface of the Earth appear in 50 million years?
In the exhibition on continental drift, we provide the answers to all of the questions above. We show how the apparently stationary continents slowly move across the surface of the Earth. Where two continents move away from each other, hot lava erupts and form volcanoes. When two continents collide, kilometre-high mountain chains are created, and powerful forces are unleashed as volcanic eruptions and earthquakes.
