Meteorites are rocks from space that have landed on our planet and the Museum has one of the biggest collections of meteorites in the world.

Most of these meteorites have come from the asteroid belt which sits in between the orbits of Mars and Jupiter.

Join meteorite expert Ashley King and see some space rocks that are older than Earth.
