Since 2002, the exhibition ship “MS Wissenschaft” is on tour for several months a year. Presenting science in new and playful ways, including through hands-on exhibits, the ship docks at 35 cities for a few days each. 80.000 people are visiting per year on an average, among them several hundred school classes. Most of the usually interactive exhibition pieces are contributed by institutes and universities, who use the opportunity to present their research work in unconventional ways to public. Admission is free of charge.
In 2017 the tour takes five months and stops at several points in the southern and middle part of Germany. It starts on the 24th April in Bonn and will finish on the 8th October in Straubing. In 2016*17 the exhibition will offer fascinating insights into marine research.
More information about the dates in 2017 are given in the Tourplan.
