The climate changes along the eighth degree east longitude are the main theme of this interesting world of discovery. But there is still so much to explore and do here.
Things to do in the Klimahaus
This museum is perfect for experience-based learning. No one will deny that learning through reading is so last decade. The information is best absorbed when all your senses join the educational process. So seize the opportunity to feel the climate changes instead of reading or being told about them. The weather studio will show the perspective of the future influenced by our carbon footprint and our chances to withstand the extreme weather conditions. Multimedia installations and interactive exhibits will grab the attention of visitors of any age. Seminar facilities are also provided for the people more interested in exotic creatures or flora and fauna of our planet in general.

Books for kids and adults, special souvenirs, technical gadgets can be consumed at the shop “8° Ost”. The shop is also a kind of information centre, so feel free to ask whatever you need here.
Tips for the Visitors
In order to enjoy the visit you’ll probably need more or less three hours, so don’t take into account the fact that 90 minutes before closing you still have a chance to enter the exhibition. 90 minutes won’t be enough to have a close look at the most interesting exponents here.
During the exhibition ”The Journey” you’ll probably sweat in Cameroon if you are ready only to withstand the chilly temperature of Alaska, so the layered clothing is the best option to match the climate changes. Sensible shoes are also recommended to cross African rope bridges for example. Wearing high heels is definitely a no-go.
And finally, taking photos is not forbidden at the exhibition, only be sure you don’t use a stand for the camera or a flash, which may bother other visitors.
