The Zoological Museum Kiel is one of the oldest natural history museums in Germany. Its beginnings go back to the 17th century. In the 19th century the museum evolved into one of the most significant zoological research institutes in Germany. Thus, the museum archives - until today - unique collections with high scientific and cultural value. This can be seen in the exhibitions: Valuable original preparations from three centuries show the thematic range from the history of the museum to the latest marine research.
Especially impressive is the central hall of the museum. In the year 1881, the Architect Martin Gropius from Berlin created a unique spatial experience of exceptional aesthetics using a fascinating combination of glass, steel and light.
