Collection team


One of the main tasks of the collection work is ongoing digital acquisition of valuable collections in the Internet database SESAM. The acquisition is mainly through students, which are interested in zoology, who thereby gain experience in museum work and at the same time receive a thorough training in conservation techniques and collection management. In addition, students have the unique opportunity to deepen their zoological knowledge of certain animal groups using valuable original preparations. If possible we always try to provide student assistant funds (HIWI) for this work. Biology students, who are interested in collection-related activities, are always very welcome! Please email:

The team consists of students, the curator and director of the museum (Dirk Brandis), the curator of the entomological collection (Michael Kuhlmann) and the collection manager (Lina Rosotta).
