Exploring the museum on your own 

There are various materials available for children and families to explore the museum and the exhibition areas on their own. Our discovery sheets, the museum rallies and much more are available here.

Open museum studio in the microscopy centre

Colorful butterflies, impressive bird wings, ancient fossils, a dinosaur jaw cast - the museum invites you to discover interesting, mysterious, beautiful and surprising museum objects with your hands. Explore them under the microscope and sharpen your own eye by sketching with a pencil.
This offer is intended for visitors of all ages.
Artistic concept: Caspar Pauli.
All current dates can be found in our event calendar.

Torchlight tours

Once the Museum has closed its gates, visitors sneak through the dark exhibition halls, torch in hand. On their search for the different animals of the night, they explore the museum's exhibitions. Don’t forget to bring your torch! Children must be accompanied by adults for safety reasons, maximum 2 children per adult.

  • Participants: from age 8: Fridays and Saturdays 6:00 p.m. / from age 10: Fridays and Saturdays 8:00 p.m., November to February
  • Cost: €15.00 / reduced €12.00 (including admission), for 90 min (only in German)

Please note that torchlight tours only take place on the dates in our event calendar. Unfortunately, booking at other times or for groups is not possible.
