Unwrapped! 125 years of history in the Museum Natur und Mensch

Museum Natur und Mensch

In the hearts of the city and its people for 125 years: Freiburg’s oldest museum is celebrating an anniversary – time to spill the beans and take a look behind the scenes. Experts, artists and friends introduce 125 exciting, surprising, critical, amusing or a very personal perspectives on 41 objects in the Natural history and Ethnological collection.

They focus on the eventful history of the museum or the characteristics of the: objects from ancient Egyptian beaded netting to a Japanese Buddha statue; from Hinterwald cattle via the mythical quetzal to meteorites from outer space: the unknown becomes visible; familiar things are viewed in a different light. The museum invites you to take an extraordinary journey through space and time that gives plenty of food for thought.
