This exhibition is dedicated to the life and work of geophysicist and Greenland explorer Alfred Wegener (1880-1930). The man who developed the theory of continental drift spent several summers as a child at his grandparents’ country estate in the Rheinsberg district of Zechlinerhütte. The museum has lots of hands-on attractions and is primarily aimed at children, young people and families. It also houses some unique exhibits. More generally, the museum seeks to establish a link between the geophysics of the 19th and 20th centuries and modern climate research.
Due to the current crisis and the requirements involved, the museum will unfortunately remain closed for the time being.
