Talks at the Universum®

Exciting talks about things really worth knowing are a regular occurrence at the Universum®! The contents revolve around the topics of our permanent and our various special exhibitions. The topics dealt with cover both scientific and pop culture aspects. The wide range of talks are anything but tedious and are aimed at interested beginners and experts alike. There is something there for everyone: families, young adults, academics and OAPs.
