Our Mission: Discovering and describing life and earth - with people, through dialogue.
The Museum für Naturkunde Berlin (MfN) is an excellent and integrated research museum of the Leibniz Association with an international reputation and globally connected research infrastructure. MfN is active in three closely interlinked fields: collection-based research, collection development, and research-based public and educational outreach. Over the next ten years, the Museum für Naturkunde Berlin will build up a science campus for nature and society in the centre of Berlin as science hub, together with the Humboldt Universität zu Berlin. New laboratories and workplaces for cutting-edge research will be established. One of the world's most comprehensive natural history collections with over 30 million objects will be housed in state of the art buildings as well as fully digitized. The implementation of the so-called Zukunftsplan (future plan), funded with a total of 660 million euros from the Federal Government and the State of Berlin, strongly relies on interdisciplinary national and international partners.

Within the framework of the Future Plan, we are developing the collection of the Museum für Naturkunde Berlin in a sustainable way, i.e. conservationally secured, digitally recorded and made accessible for innovative uses. In doing so, we are developing the collection into an open, digital-analogue research infrastructure that can meet future scientific, social and technological requirements. As a modern research and information infrastructure, our collection will be fully integrated into the European landscape, designed to be analogue and digitally interoperable, thus enabling holistic access. Of central importance is the embedding of the collection in the global and historical context as well as the presentation of this complex structure.
