Animals and mythical creatures – Cawing, roaring, hissing

Prunkschlitten in der Loggia in der Dauerausstellung "Die Sammlung".

Kindergarten | Elementary school | Middle school

To fly like a bird, fight like a lion, or climb like a monkey – throughout its history, humanity has been intrigued by the special abilities of animals. But why are some animals considered sly or evil? And why did people believe in dragons in former times? Selected exhibits allow students to explore the close relationships between humans and animals.
