LIESELS CAFE AT FORUM WISSEN [Currently closed – sorry for the inconvenience!]

Our museum café Liesels has fair-trade coffee specialties on offer as well as homemade cakes, sandwiches, Fritz Kola lemonades and regional products. Liesels is a stylish coffeebar in the atrium of Forum Wissen. Whether you want to relax after a visit to the museum or you just happen to come by, you can relax in the lounge inside or on the big outside terrace.

Opening hours: Tuesday – Sunday, 11am-5pm


In the museum shop you will find museum and University merchandise, science games for children and adults, high-end stationery, and an attractive selection of books including our catalogue:

The catalogue for the core exhibition at Forum Wissen offers insights into the emergence and structure of the spaces of knowledge. It places the exhibition in a wider context and presents numerous exhibits in greater depth based on object analyses. Available in our museum store or online from the publisher.
