Mu­seums of Nat­ur­al His­tory and Sci­ence


Ex­per­i­ence des­tin­a­tions in­vite vis­it­ors on jour­neys of dis­cov­ery

Exploring, experimenting, researching and trying things out is the clear focus at some popular experience destinations. Visitors participate in entire series of experiments that challenge the intellect and really make heads spin, for example. Planetariums whisk space pilots away to distant stars and strange galaxies.  Various aspects of everyday life play a role in varied permanent exhibitions. Some institutions are even dedicated to presenting an element, other establishments dissect the scientific links between flora and fauna from a natural history perspective. Anyone who wants to find out more about physical laws, chemical processes and technical advances will certainly expand their horizons in many different ways at the educational establishments.
