Our museum collections are composed of materials donated from inside and outside of our university.We also keep registered specimens that were used for scientific research and education of many different fields. For example: Rocks and minerals from Africa; Fossils (radiolarians); Extant animals (skeletons of particular breeds of horses and chickens); Extant plants (Prof. Takaki's bryophytes); Historical documents and folklore goods (Daidoji Family documents, Chinese woodcuts, Ex Libris); Machines and devices; Gravity data maps; Films and photos related to university activities; and Miscellaneous (wax models for medical education).
The Nagoya University Museum owns 135 rock specimens from the Sør Rondane Mountains, East Antarctica, some of which have been dated using U-Pb methods for zircon. The basic data, such as Pb/U isotopic ratios, used for the dating are available here.
