The Museum of Human and Nature is a modern natural history museum, which is housed in the Nymphenburg Palace in Munich. It is part of the State Natural History Collections in Bavaria.
Already before the Second World War there was a natural history museum in Munich, which was located in the old academy - a former building of the Jesuit Order in the Neuhauser Strasse -. This building was destroyed in the war, so a new museum had toi be constructed. A simple, cheap and good solution was to built a museum in a house, which already exists. So the Museum of Man and Nature was instituted in the Nymphenburg Palace.1990 it was finally opened.
The museum offers a comprehensive overview of the evolution of life on Earth and the emergence of the entire solar system. Furthermore a detailed discussion of the anatomy and human development. Even current nutritional and environmental problems are addressed here.
