In addition to visiting the exhibitions with an online ticket, during the summer holidays from 23 June onwards there will again be the opportunity to take part in educational programmes in and outside the Museum für Naturkunde Berlin. In addition to exclusive guided tours of the exhibitions for small groups, the Museum offers guided tours on urban ecology in the Museum courtyards, around the Museum or in the Tiergarten during the summer months. The exhibitions and their highlights, for example the Research Wet Collection, can be visited free of charge on 5 July and 2 August during the Sundays when admission is free. As a supplement and as a preparation and follow-up, there are numerous digital offers to get even more Berliners interested in nature. On Instagram, Twitter, Facebook and TikTok, we also take interested people behind the scenes of the exhibition, collection and research. In the experimental field of the Museum of Natural History Berlin, for example, young people can strengthen their knowledge on the subject of climate and climate consequences - online and throughout Germany.

From 23 June onwards, visitors to the Museum of Natural History Berlin can again take part in guided tours inside and outside the museum. On the "Big City Safaris", nature lovers aged 6 years and older can discover Berlin's urban nature with the Museum's guides. On these guided tours of urban ecology, participants roam the museum courtyards with the "Nature View" app, get to know the animals and plants around the museum or track down newly immigrated animals and plants in the Tiergarten. The tours are aimed at adults, young people and families with children from 6 years of age.

The guided tour "Urban Ecology and Climate Change" can also be booked by groups or as further training for teachers, educators or students. The maximum number of participants is currently ten. It is also possible to book exclusive exhibition tours at the Museum für Naturkunde Berlin, initially for one household or groups of four people. Kitas and primary schools can also borrow the "Jura Adventure Box", a mobile museum case, free of charge. In the box, children aged 4 to 12 years will find everything they need for an exciting scientific excavation of fossils and their identification.
In the coming weeks, the museum will successively reopen and further expand its educational offerings, especially for daycare centres and schools.
Further information on the educational programmes, conditions of participation, registration options and the protection and hygiene rules can be found on the museum's homepage:
