BIOTOPIA is active throughout Bavaria, networking existing institutions, creating synergies and providing inspiration for ideas and joint action. The concept is not limited to the Munich-Nymphenburg site, but will bring together museums, educational and research institutions throughout Bavaria. The aim is to create a network that promotes the life sciences and natural sciences with innovative approaches in all regions of Bavaria and offers education in the fields of natural history and environmental protection for all. It is intended to inspire people across the generations for nature and the natural sciences, to awaken young people's thirst for research, to promote the next generation of natural scientists and to encourage people to take a responsible approach to our planet.
With BIOTOPIA, an educational and discussion forum is being created for the topics that are crucial to the future and the missing interface between science, society, business and politics, which will have an impact far beyond Bavaria. BIOTOPIA not only makes the outstanding Bavarian research known nationally and internationally, but also shows largely unknown treasures of the State Natural Science Collections of Bavaria, such as the world's largest butterfly collection with 25 million inventory units. Numerous supra-regional Bavarian projects, campaigns and events are planned for the future and are already taking place. Exhibitions "made in Bavaria" are already touring nationwide and thus offer great visibility for Bavaria's treasures, knowledge and natural history.
BIOTOPIA - Naturkundemuseum Bayern serves the whole of Bavaria. The concept is not limited to the Nymphenburg site, but will bring together museums, educational and research institutions throughout Bavaria. The goal is a network that promotes life sciences and natural sciences with innovative approaches in all regions of Bavaria - the network idea is thus an integral part of the project.
Forests, mountains, lakes, moors - Bavaria's nature is insanely diverse! Museums, botanical gardens, environmental, adventure and national park centers invite you to experience, explore, understand and protect Bavaria's nature. As the Naturkundemuseum Bayern, BIOTOPIA is building a network of such institutions. We are looking forward to exciting event series, joint special and traveling exhibitions, and even more supraregional projects!
BIOTOPIA is already reaching out to people all over Bavaria with numerous projects and activities and wants to bring the fascination of nature and life to the entire Free State. Whether it's competitions for aspiring nature photographers, citizen science projects in which anyone can easily participate and make a contribution to researching biodiversity, programs and exhibitions on tour through Bavaria, digital content or Bavaria-wide festivals: BIOTOPIA brings the Bio-Boost for Bavaria!
The Museum Mensch und Natur and BIOTOPIA are constantly launching exciting new special exhibitions or bringing them to Bavaria. The exhibitions then tour the Free State, reaching an even larger audience. Exhibits, objects and research results from all over Bavaria are also shown in the Munich exhibitions. This strengthens the reciprocal visibility of the Bavarian network. BIOTOPIA as a stage for life and environmental sciences and the treasures of native nature throughout Bavaria!
