The Museum am Schölerberg is holding an open house from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Sunday, May 21 (International Museum Day). Guests will receive free admission to the new permanent exhibition and reduced admission to the planetarium. Museum staff will offer guided tours of the museum's blooming garden and a solar observation with the Astro-AG. Children will also get to know the Grasshopper, the museum's environmental mobile, and explore nature on site with it. A selection of food and drinks will also be available.
The Museum am Schölerberg only reopened on April 29 after almost three years of renovation work and already recorded almost 1,000 visitors on the first weekend. The new exhibition shows the development of life from the birth of our planet to urban models of the future. It offers an exciting mix of unique exhibits, modern technology and interactive stations. Guests discover, among other things, a detailed carbon forest in which augmented reality brings extinct animals back to life, and experience processes in nature using regional objects and interesting hands-on opportunities.
There is much to discover in the new permanent exhibition - from native animal species to extinct plants from the Carboniferous period.
