THE BIOTOPIA PROJECT

A completely new, internationally significant museum: BIOTOPIA, museum of life. BIOTOPIA – Naturkundemuseum Bayern will create a space in which our relationship to other living beings can be re-thought and re-configured. It will inspire visitors to encounter our planet’s diversity – to reconnect with nature, to “explore life”.
VISION
BIOTOPIA will deepen the relationships between humans, their environment and other living beings and contribute to a new understanding of biodiversity and ecosystems in Bavaria and all over the world. The museum will foster stewardship for the environment throughout Bavaria and in doing so, works together closely with the Bavarian Natural History Collections, drawing on their rich compilation of objects and research findings.
BIOTOPIA LAB
In the interim phase while the Museum Man and Nature is closed and before it reopens as BIOTOPIA, the BIOTOPIA Lab serves as a temporary information, exhibition and event space. From presumably late 2019 on, it gives a first insight into the themes and work of BIOTOPIA and offers programmes and activities for school classes and anybody else interested in the project.
NETWORK
BIOTOPIA is not only one central museum in Munich but intends to work with museums, educational institutions and research facilities throughout Bavaria. This gives rise to a bavaria-wide network that makes life sciences and natural history accessible in all regions.
