Special exhibitions – covering a wide range of themes

With its permanent and special exhibitions, the museum has made a name for itself as a recognised and independent high-profile educational establishment. It actively shapes the political and scientific debate on the role of technology and science in modern societies by also organising lectures, symposia and congresses.
