Future Plan

Grafik des Museumsgebäudes von oben

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.
