Leibniz Research Museums
The eight Leibniz Research Museums collect, investigate, and engage. Our collections and archives comprise well over 100 million objects and form the foundation for research into:
• The history of the earth and biodiversity
• The history of culture and technology
• The preservation of scientific and cultural heritage
With our research-based permanent and special exhibitions at 12 locations in Germany, the museums reach millions of people every year and have a significant impact on the dissemination of knowledge to the public.
