This will probably be Europe’s first airport vineyard
The museum will be a powerful addition to the city’s innovative eco-system
On 17 September, the Future Museum opened in Nurnberg, Germany, showcasing the possible future of technology and natural sciences and the effects they may have on our way of life. The museum is a branch of the Munich-based Deutsche Museum (German Museum) and the opening ceremony was attended by the Bavarian Minister-President Dr Markus Söder and Nurnberg Lord Mayor Marcus König.
Juxtaposing science and fiction
The Future Museum has nearly 3,000 square metres of exhibition space, spread over several floors. The exhibits themselves focus on pressing issues about the near and not so near future. The nature of work in the next 10 to 50 years, what cities will look like in the future and what will happen with the planet's resources are some of the themes the museum aims to tackle.
It also deals with the topic of aerospace, technology and their impact on society. Of course, only time will tell whether the predictions are accurate or not.
The museum is split into five subject areas – ‘Work & Everyday Life’, ‘Body & Mind’, ‘System City’, ‘System Earth’ and ‘Time and Space’. At the same time, the concept of juxtaposing science and fiction as concepts underpins the whole museum. Flying cars go right next to Mars space station projects.
Mayor Marcus König praised the new project and what it could bring to the city. According to him, Nurnberg has thrived on good ideas for centuries. A wealth of ideas has been essential for its development. He continued by explaining that the main driving force behind the city’s flexibility is a combination of creativity and an agile innovation eco-system.
Mayor König welcomed the Future Museum by saying: “The Nuremberg innovation ecosystem consists of innovation locations - places of education, research, creativity, networking and inspiration - and the relationships between the active people there and the companies. With the opening of the Deutsches Museum in Nuremberg, this ecosystem will have a strong network node.”
