“Yes, and in the Max Planck Institute, of course …”. No Christine, the name is Max Planck Science Gallery! It’s hard to remember the name if you know the institutes of Mr. Max Planck from so many German cities. And it’s also hard to remember, if you can barely imagine what the gallery is all about.
On entering the gallery we observed that we had never seen anything like it. With a nice view of the Gendarmenmarkt from the huge window the 120-sqm room is full of colourful and vibrant impressions. Three bubbly young staff members helped us find our way there and we were full of amazement. At five stations you can interactively gain information on the fundamental research of the Max Planck Society, move images and watch films. “Tipping elements” were a a highly fascinating and very important topic. Come, explore and see for yourself!
But why choose Berlin as the location for such a special “museum“, we wondered. Berlin is a place that is constantly in motion, so such an innovative institution that moves so many people really belongs there.
This place is definitely a must-see. But you should take your time, as there is so much to experience and try!
Your totally overwhelmed scouts!
