Many people know the exhibitions at the Museum am Löwentor and Schloss Rosenstein, but do they know what work goes on behind the scenes. Behind the scenes there is a large number of scientists conducting cutting edge research on the vast museum collections, which contain eleven million items ranging from flea to dinosaur. The museum’s research output is 100 journal publications annually, and these are read by a worldwide community of scientists working on a variety of topics.
Have you ever wondered where and how we keep such a large collection?
What special equipment and laboratories do we use to prepare and analyse items in the collections?
What different topics do we explore using the collections?
We think that our science research is so exciting that we would like to share it with everyone!
It is time to show you our new Science Blog, which includes research live directly from the State Museum of Natural History Stuttgart.
