On the provenance of selected specimens in the Museum Alexander Koenig
ZFMK Project lead: 
Object of research: 
Mammals, Birds, Reptiles, Fish

Description

The animals exhibited in the Museum Koenig are mostly representatives of their respective species. However, some exhibits have an exciting story to tell, for example because they come from a famous collector or only came to the Museum Koenig in Bonn via detours. The aim of the project is to find out the special stories of individual specimens in the museum's exhibitions and to write them down in order to make them accessible to a broader public, for example in the form of popular science publications or as part of museum educational programs. This provenance project is carried out on behalf of the department for museum education.
