BIOTOPIA is a life sciences and natural history museum for the 21st century, intended to inspire all generations. The new museum will be a platform for exhibitions, participation and joint communication, a space for lifelong learning and experiencing nature and science. The slogan "Explore Life." invites visitors to explore the relationships between humans and other living beings.
To make BIOTOPIA happen, the Förderkreis BIOTOPIA supports the mission, the objectives and the work of the future museum. It creates reliable partnerships with politics, businesses and media and promotes BIOTOPIA nationwide as a new and multifaceted kind of museum.
