In the Experimental Field, the Museum für Naturkunde Berlin is testing various formats of research communication as well as new participatory approaches. As a space for direct interaction between science and citizens, we would like to make science more open to the public.

Many ethical questions cannot and should not be answered by scientists alone. A broad discussion is needed in order to make good decisions. We want to enrich our collections and research with the diverse perspectives and opinions of our visitors. The exchange with the public is a central element of our work, which is why direct communication between museum staff and visitors as well as insights into the everyday life of a research museum are made possible in the Experimental Field.

Do you have any ideas or wishes about what you would like to implement in the Experimental Field? Come by and write to us at
