Invite your friends to join an

EXPEDITION at the Zoological Museum

Have your children's birthday party at the Zoological Museum and give the kids and their friends an experience beyond the ordinary.

Together with one of the museum hosts you will go on a scientific expedition to the animal kingdom. Step back in time as a fossil-hunter and face a giant dinosaur. Go around the world from north to south, over the ice cap in the biting cold and through the dark jungle, teeming with fascinating insects. Explore the conservator's workshop where insects, birds, fish and mammals are prepared for the collections and for the researchers' studies and try yourself to work as a conservator, palaeontologist or biologist – it gets wild!

The Expedition includes


  • An introduction in the museum's Discovery Room (approx. 10 min.)

  • A speciel guided tour in the Zoological Museum with our own host (45 min.)

  • A workshop where everyone can make their own zoological souvenir (20 min.)

  • A reserved table in the lunch room for the birthday guests (approx. 1 hour)

  • Entrance to the Zoological Museum's exhibitions, that you are welcome to explore on your own before or after the Expedition (within the museum's openingshours)
