The public's fluffy favourites are back again: for six weeks they can be observed as they emerge in the hatchery and then join the other chicks in the enclosure. Interesting facts about eggs and hens together with general information about poultry farming supplement the show. The symbolic significance of eggs is showcased by means of exciting exhibits and stories in the ethnological collection.
Finds of international significance are the focus of the newly arranged exhibition on the Iron Age in South Baden. Quite outstanding is the oldest glass bowl north of the Alps from Ihringen am Kaiserstuhl. The walk-in burial chamber from Kappel on the Rhine enables visitors to time-travel to a bygone era 2,500 years ago.

How can art endure, age, change? How can the museum create and cultivate relationships with artists, as well as with private and public partners? Indeed, how can it use and enrich the history of its own collection? How can the collection be developed and extended in future? Both in good times and in bad? A new special exhibition will address these questions, focussing in particular on one influential feature of the museum as a public site: it undertakes a responsibility over a long period, promoting discourse and fostering connections and relationships.
