Spaces of Knowledge

Discover our Core Exhibition

Forum Wissen – the new museum of knowledge in Göttingen – aims to make research with objects tangible: In the various “Rooms of Knowledge” you can learn about motives and ideas, practices and dependencies of researchers as well as different perspectives on the approximately 1,400 objects from the collections of Göttingen University.

Covering an area of around 1,200 square metres, the basic exhibition features an unusual scenography, from a book tower and walk-in desk to bubble chairs and the proverbial wooden path. In the collection showcase, the curators of the university’s academic collections present changing objects, and anyone who wants to can collect objects digitally with their mobile phone on the tour across subject boundaries and “take them with them” virtually at the end via a special app for further use at home.

The basic exhibition is supplemented by changing special exhibitions on specific topics.

It is located in the former Zoology Building on Berliner Straße next to Göttingen’s train station.

The museum is open Tuesdays to Sundays from 10 am to 6 pm. Admission is free!

All signs & Audioguides are available in English, too. As will this webpage be – we are currently working on it.
