Digital guided tours

In our Guided Tours, you can join tours through both exhibition and collection of the museum from home. The digital tours make knowledge of our research collection accessible online.

Materials for handicrafts and coloring

Some of our materials that are explicitly made for children are also available digitally. You can download and customize the following masks – most of them inspired by exhibits in our exhibition. Please note that the cut out masks are sharp-edged on normal printer paper.

City nature discoveries with Naturblick

Which bird is chirping in the tree? And while you're at it: Which tree is this bird chirping on? With our Naturblick app ('nature view' in English) you determine the species of the city nature. You can use image recognition to find out which plant is in front of you and can even record bird sounds, have them assigned by the app and create your own bird sound collection. This is also possible from your own balcony or garden.

Digital research trip with Google Arts & Culture

Also online, you can marvel at our Biodiversity Wall with around 3,000 prepared animal species, discover our research wet collection and stretch your neck until you – at the very top – admire the head of the world's largest mounted dinosaur skeleton. With Google Arts & Culture you visit the Museum für Naturkunde like you do with Google Street View. In addition, Giraffatitan and some preparations from the biodiversity wall come to life via virtual reality.
