Developing this campus, the Museum für Naturkunde Berlin, together with its national and international partners, will be able to address some of the grande challenges of the 21st century: biodiversity loss, climate change and sustainable development, through its science and in co-creation with society. The re-shaping of the organization will lead to an internationally networked, open and integrated research museum, focusing on nature, evolution, one health, life science and society.
Our new or re-furbished estate will allow the museum to continue to excel at its cutting-edge research, to develop its collection developments as a global scientific infrastructure and to better serve its communities – locally and globally. These € 660M (c. $760M) are one of the biggest investments in natural history museums globally. This significant financial contribution allows for reliable planning which is needed to develop a science and society campus over the next years. We are proud to do this with our national and international partners, but first and foremost with the Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin and the Leibniz Association.
