Thanks to its creative and imaginative facilities, the open studio is ideal for presentations and talks.

Thanks to its layout, the room is also perfect for workshops in teams. Have you already read about our variety of team events?

Right at the heart of our permanent exhibition where the staircases lead to our three topic areas Technology, Mankind and Nature, is where you can find our Universaal hall. It is an ideal location for presentations, talks, debates and seminars.
The room itself has no natural light sources, so it is also possible to host events in total darkness. For example, the Universaal is where we host our popular “Dinner und Café im Dunkeln” (Dinner and Coffee in the Dark) events. Due to its layout, the room is also ideal for our amazing science shows, which you can book exclusively for your event.
