Permanent exhibition

Nature + Medicine

from 18.04.2024


Which natural substances have medicinal properties?

What do animals find in their environment to heal themselves? A new permanent exhibition on the museum’s 2nd floor provides fascinating insights into topics relating to human health and our relationship with nature. A large, illuminated picture behind the façade of an historic pharmacy shows over 100 organisms that are pharmaceutically important – and a media table offers visitors detailed information about their medical benefits. Global connections between health, biodiversity, and the anthroposphere arealso examined, since human health is directly linked to our planet’s wellbeing. Extraordinary insights into the history of medicine round off the exhibition, which was created with the generous support of the Else Kröner-Fresenius Foundation.
