A New MUSEUM OF NATURE FOR HAMBURG
With the new Natural History Museum EVOLUTIONEUM, the City of Hamburg and the Leibniz Association are closing a gap in Hamburg’s museum landscape. With its central, attractive location in HafenCity, the new museum is intended to tie in with the history and charisma of the important NATURAL HISTORY MUSEUM, which was destroyed during the Second World War. As a centre for biodiversity and evolution research as well as a forum for innovative educational and event programmes, it is to become a beacon for Hamburg as a science location with its valuable collections.
The new Natural History Museum is being built here
Site 51 – the building plot for the museum – is the area enclosed by Shanghaiallee, Hongkongstraße and Überseeallee.
