Memorial Center


The new Brehm Memorial Center is still under construction! Most of the attractions described below will not be available until our reopening in 2018. Nonetheless you are welcome in the mean time to the Brehm Memorial Center where you can visit the former exhibition and take a look at our plans for our fresh start!

Come and visit the Brehm Memorial Center!


through the library of the Brehm family and leaf through the letters and notebooks of both scientists!


our exhibition and learn lots of  interesting things about zoology and the history of science!


the life and research in the 19th century inside our authentically reconstructed living and working rooms of the Brehms!
