Experience, understand, shape

Visitors to the Bonn branch can now come into close contact with artificial intelligence (AI). Twenty five years after the museum opened in 1995 with its thematic focus on contemporary research and technology in Germany, “Mission AI ­ experiencing.understanding.participating” stands for the realignment into the key location for experiencing artificial intelligence in North Rhine-Westphalia. The central idea is to give the museum visitors the opportunity to understand the basic principles of artificial intelligence in an experience-oriented way and to proficiently provide them with information about the opportunities and risks of this technology so that they can then form their own judgement.

From now on, the “new” Deutsches Museum Bonn will combine its previous strengths with the “Mission AI”. In an area of 1,400 square metres, the “Artificial Intelligence” and “Artificial Neural Networks” experience rooms have been vividly presenting the variety of applications and the basic principles of AI since 2021. In addition, the Dr Hans Riegel Foundation’s “TouchTomorrow-Lab” provides illuminating insights into the digital world of tomorrow. The outstanding collection of historic exhibits relating to particle and accelerator physics is gaining new perspectives, for example on the basis of the question of how artificial intelligence is already being used today in research into the basic principles of matter.

A museum for all!
Whether for parents, families, children or school groups – the “new” Deutsches Museum also provides something for all possible target groups in its activities.
