Events

Our DJs Shaka & The Haze (CH) heat up the winter in our atmospheric museum bar. Once a month you can visit the exhibition "SEXY - Driving Force of Life" in the evening and then toast to the end of the day.

During our guided tour through the special exhibition SEXY – DRIVING FORCE OF LIFE, we show you the role sex plays in reproduction. You will discover that some animals have two sexes, while some have none and others have several. There are animals that can change their sex and animals that can have two sexes at the same time. But they all have one thing in common: they want to reproduce.
