Museum Natur und Mensch – The richness and uniqueness of natural and cultural environments

Two rolled into one! The Museum Natur und Mensch combines natural history and ethnology under one roof. Children and adults can actively experience the fascination of natural and cultural diversity.

The natural history exhibitions “Time” and “Earthly Riches” with their fossils and sparkling crystals show visitors the geological history of southern Germany – the world of dinosaurs and mammoths.

The “Forest”, “Water” and “Meadow” adventure rooms are places where you can experience with all your senses. Beavers, lynxes and peregrine falcons are waiting to be discovered. And if you look carefully, you will also encounter some very special “Freiburgers” such as the Baden giant earthworm or the bee-eater.

The ethnological collection can be seen in special exhibitions where humanity’s cultural richness and current developments are brought into focus.

The Museum Natur und Mensch is barrier-free accessible.
