Book a Scientist

How do you exhibit molecules? How do you collect the Anthropocene? Who visits a museum? What do restorers use to open a medieval reliquary pendant? How is a new exhibition created? What does a fishologist do? What tools do modern paleontologists use and what exactly is a research museum?

Asking questions is essential to learning - “Book a Scientist" gives you the chance to talk to an expert from the Leibniz Association for 25 minutes and ask everything you have always wanted to know about your favorite topic. This time with an exclusive insight into the world of the Leibniz research museums.

The eight Leibniz Research Museums of the Leibniz Association are opening their doors exclusively! In personal interviews, the staff members offer you an insight into their daily work, the various departments and the exhibition planning.

The Museum für Naturkunde will be represented by scientists on the following topics:

  • Elisabeth Heyne: How to Collect the Anthropocene? What can objects tell us about the relationship between humans and the earth?
  • Katja Kaiser: Natural history collections from colonial contexts
  • Robert Luther: The effects of asteroid impacts and how can they be prevented?
  • Volker Schönert: Visitor research and museum evaluation
