Sammelsurium – display repository and collections


Many visitors associate the museum with magnificent exhibits that are beautifully arranged - some of which are behind glass, but some they can actually touch. Only a small part of the collection is on display in the exhibitions, however. Where are all the other treasures that are not on display kept hidden?

Since 2000, the Museum of West Lusatia’s collections have been kept in state-of-the-art air-conditioned and dust-proof storage rooms equipped with positioning units. More than 30,000 objects from West Lusatia are conserved and made available for research in the areas devoted to archaeology and cultural history, geology and biology.

Another key part of the museum’s work is carried out in these rooms. This is where archaeologists are at work, surveying, drawing and archiving shard after shard, along with geologists who continually expand the collections of magnificent crystals and rare fossils. The zoology department with its taxidermy workshop is also located in the Sammelsurium.

Visitors can view our large scientific holdings in the walk-in repositories.
