The Museum für Naturkunde (MfN) is one of eight research museums in the “Leibniz Association”, one of four large non-university research organizations in Germany. It is one of the most significant research institutions worldwide in biological and geo-scientific evolution research and biodiversity. Our research is collections-based and our collections comprise more than 30 million items relating to zoology, paleontology, geology and mineralogy, which have been compiled continuously for over 200 years and are highly significant for science as well as for the history of science. Thus, the MfN is an integrated research museum with strong national and international partnerships and networks and our public engagement is science-driven.
Discovering and describing life and earth – with people, through dialogue.
