Tokyo’s National Museum of Nature and Science opened the Pokémon Fossil Museum on Tuesday, featuring displays of Pokémon fossils and skeletons.

A sneak peek video posted on the Japanese Pokémon official Twitter page provides glimpses into some of the fossils and skeletons of various Pokémon that are on display. Although the video uses footage taken at the Mikasa, Hokkaido, location’s exhibit, the Pokémon’s Twitter page states that it provides a preview into the Tokyo location’s exhibit as well.

The exhibit’s goal is to educate fans on the similarities and differences between the fossils of real-life species that inspired the creation of Pokémon and the Pokémon Pocket Monster species.

Along with the exhibit will be a gift shop where special Excavator Pikachu merchandise will be available for purchase, including tote bags, keychains and plush toys.

Beginning Tuesday, the event will run at the Tokyo National Museum of Nature and Science until June 19. The exhibit will then move on to various museum locations across Japan, such as the Toyohashi Museum of Natural History in Aichi Prefecture and the Oita Prefectural Art Museum in Oita City.
