Who are we?
What are a natural science museum and a research institute for? Official texts establish our mission.
Several research units and services are always further investigating our planet and life upon it. Climate monitoring, nature conservancy, zoological and geological research are only a few of our activities. And, of course, the Museum holds a leading position in the field of anthropology and prehistory. In the annual report, you find an overview of our activities.
Since we aim at the future here, we attach great importance to international collaboration in all our mission fields.
