The museum has many surprises in store. How is it possible that 380 million years ago the Lahn region was located at the equator and that reefs were formed there in a warm sea? When was the Lahn marble discovered? How long was it quarried? Where has it been used? It will not surprise the visitor that the beautiful ashlar from the Lahn can be found in almost every church in Westerwald and Taunus. However, the fact that Lahn marble has travelled around almost the entire world and was used in the Rhineland cathedrals and castles, in Amsterdam, Havana in Cuba, Istanbul, Moscow, St. Petersburg, Vienna and Zurich, for example, is not really surprising when you see how beautiful this stone is.
