Senckenberg remodels its exhibition concepts in Frankfurt and extents the museum space.
The Senckenberg Naturmuseum Frankfurt is expanding. A chance for further expansion comes with the departure of Frankfurt University from the Bockenheim Campus: former university premises next-door to the museum freed up for use by Senckenberg. The exposition area will almost be doubled: from 6,000 to approximately 10,000 square meters. A new, integrated museum concept is being developed to present four thematic areas: Cosmos – Earth – People – Future. In addition, the museum’s expansion entails the construction of a planetarium in the “Cosmos” section. It offers seating for 150 visitors, who will be presented with all new impressions from our and other distant solar systems.
