The registered society of the “Landesmuseum Natur und Mensch”

In May 2003 the registered society of the “Landesmuseum für Natur und Mensch e.V.” was founded as a non profit-making organization. The intention is to support the museum in a spiritual and financial way. A further main emphasis is put on the preservation and continuation of the historico-cultural and natural history research and collections. One of the main points of interest is the concept of the museum. The connection of the interplay of the history of nature and of culture, of man and nature.

The work of the society is focused on the support of the museum as a natural- and historico-cultural institution. The priority matters of concern are the public relations work, the museum pedagogical contents and the sensitization of the population for their “own” history. This shall be achieved by eg. excursions to selected sites and themes of the region.

In addition to that the close cooperation with the local associations of nature conservancy and environmental protection are of special interest. We – that is the board, the employees of the museum and the current members, which you also may belong to very soon – would like to have a close cooperation between the society and the museum.
