The Deutsches Hygiene-Museum was founded in 1912. Today, with its exhibition projects and events, it sees itself as a forum for science, culture and society. The body and health provide the focus for its popular permanent exhibition 'Human Adventure'; the children’s museum complements this exhibition by playfully communicating knowledge about the five senses. Temporary exhibitions, well known across Germany, investigate current societal and cultural issues or topics drawn from the scientific world. The museum complex, which was built in 1930 and later modernised by Peter Kulka, offers an outstanding example of the architecture of the New Objectivity.
