The Mystery Object

Become a detective and go looking for clues to find out the real identity of our mysterious objects! But be careful - only half of the given clues are correct! Take a close look at the object, think carefully and choose the clues you think are true in our online quiz. You'll get the solution and more information at the end through a video. And don't forget to check back here regularly, because we are constantly adding new mysteryous objects!

Through the mysterious objects, BIOTOPIA presents treasures from the Bavarian Natural History Collections (SNSB) in the form of exciting object stories in the form of an installation in the BIOTOPIA Lab. Each object is explained in detail by an SNSB scientist in the solution video.
