The modern exhibitions invite you to experience a journey into the fascinating world of nature – from Lusatia to the tropics and from the soil into the coral reef. The exhibitions provide current research topics from the work of museum scientists.
The family-friendly exhibitions present the diversity and beauty of the region’s nature. Rare and typical plants and animals are displayed in dioramas “eye to eye” with the visitors. The genesis of Upper Lusatia is explained in the geology exhibition. The rain forest exhibit presents the exotic birds and mammals of the tropics. Live lizards, snakes and coral fish and a 8,000 liters tank which is inhabited by typical Lusatian pond fishes are located in the vivarium in the basement. A 30 times magnified model of a soil column extends over two floors of the staircase and shed light on the elusive animals living beneath our feet. Other exhibitions are devoted to evolution and the African savannah. In addition, the museum presents frequently changing temporary exhibitions.
The Senckenberg Museum is perfect for families. An audio receiver system with German, Polish and English explanations can be borrowed free of charge.
