Its most famous exhibit, Jilin No. 1, the largest intact meteorite on earth, accompanies many other meteorite specimens from around the world.

  Largest Intact Meteorite in the World

  On March 8, 1976, a heavy stream of meteorites began showering the northern suburbs of Jilin at about 3:00 p.m. With an ear-splitting roar, one massive meteorite dissolved into numerous pieces of various sizes when it was still 19 kilometers high in the air. Fortunately, no damage or injuries occurred within its landing area of about 500 square kilometers. Its 138 surviving specimens and more than 3,000 fragments weighing a total of 2,616 kilograms make the Jilin meteorite shower the planet’s largest such occurrence.
