The permanent «Earth Sciences» exhibition concentrates on the history of our planet and the evolution of the Central Swiss landscape. The permanent «Biology» exhibition looks at the region’s flora and fauna and includes numerous animals in aquariums and terrariums. Meanwhile, the permanent exhibition titled «The wonderful world of insects» focuses on the incredible diversity of insects in the collection of researcher Walter Linsenmaier from Ebikon (1917–2000).
