Upcoming at the museum

Big changes are coming to the museum! In the next few years, two buildings will be ready with new exhibits for visitors. In addition, we are planning to build a brand new green house in the future. Here you can read about the new buildings and our upcoming exhibits.

The Climate House in 2020


The Climate House will be an arena for communicating science based knowledge on climate and the environment. Through the active dissemination of knowledge, sensory experiences and exploration of solutions to current climate issues, we aim at inspiring visitors and the general public to change towards a sustainable way of life.

New exhibitions in 2022


The Natural History Museum aims at challenging and renewing the ways in which scientific knowledge is disseminated to the general public. By telling stories of real and unique objects, displaying natural processes and questions that remain unanswered, we wish to generate wonder and excitement about Earth and the history of life.
