The eight research museums within the Leibniz Association collect objects, conduct research and transfer knowledge. Their archives contain well over 100 million objects and provide the basis for research into the history of the Earth and biodiversity, cultural history and the history of technology, and for research into conservation of our scientific and cultural heritage.

With their research-based permanent and special exhibitions at 12 locations across Germany, the museums reach millions of people every year and play an important part in knowledge transfer. Together, the Leibniz research museums increase understanding of science as a process, and allow people to critically evaluate science and society.

  1. Eight research museums, one collaborative project

    With their Aktionsplan the eight Leibniz Research Museums are animating scientific research, offering ways to connect, encouraging people to help shape change. The theme of their collaborative activities is A World in Motion.
