LangeNachtmitBirdly2019 Lange Nacht der Münchner Museen (Munich Museum Night): Everything in Motion

7:00pm - 2:00am

At Museum Mensch und Natur, everything is in motion: For the last time, the museum welcomes you for the Museum Night, before the reconception and expansion leading to "BIOTOPIA - Naturkundemuseum Bayern" starts in 2020 and before the museum's relocation to its "interim quarter" in the Botanical Garden takes place.

An exciting program with numerous attractions and surprises throughout the house is ready and of course BIOTOPIA is also there:

On the "Birdly flight simulator" you can experience the world from a bird's perspective. Or would you rather observe bustling water organisms under the microscope? Try out our reaction game to see you how quick you are or feel the ground shake beneath your feet in our earthquake simulator. And of course, the traditional wheel of fortune is spinning also.

And if you need some refreshment after all this exercise, you can visit CaféBar Limulus!

Regrettably, we have to announce that this year's BIOTOPIA SENSE Festival will not take place on June 21, 2020. Both the ban on major events until the end of October issued by the German and Bavarian governments and our concern for the safety of all people involved – contributors, organizers and visitors – make this step necessary. This is sad news for all of us.
