In the Museum of Natural History in Mitte, selected topics are made accessible using exhibits, media and explanatory texts.
One of the highlights of the museum is the World of Dinosaurs, in which fossil finds from 150 million years ago are exhibited. Short, interactive video animations complete the information.
The System Earth exhibition is also designed to be interactive, with a huge globe at its center. Animations and film sequences on geographical conditions and events can be viewed on a large screen. On other learning stations, visitors get to know the other planets of the solar system, learn interesting things about volcanoes and (historical) climate change.
Especially exciting for younger children is the huge biodiversity wall in the Evolution in Action exhibition, which (symbolic of global biodiversity) shows around 3000 animal specimens. Some animal species are represented in evolutionary history.
Other topics that are shown in the Museum of Natural History in partial exhibitions include: cosmos and solar system, birds and native animals, as well as highlights of the art of preparation.
An overview of the individual exhibitions can be found here.
