Special Exhibitions

In addition to the permanent exhibition, there are regular special exhibitions or presentations that refer to current topics ("Instrument of the Year") or research projects. The aim is to constantly shed new light on the museum's holdings from different perspectives. The exhibitions are often accompanied by catalogues, which are available in the museum shop.
