Man and Environment
Agriculture and Food – From the field to the table
Across several thematic areas with numerous interactive elements, you will learn about the origins of our “daily bread” – and discover its impact and adverse effects on our health and the environment.
This exhibition provides a wonderful insight into where our food comes from and how it is produced. Presented across several thematic areas, the museum’s technology-driven, historical collection is linked to social, economic and ecological factors. In the first room, idyll and reality are juxtaposed, symbolised by an original alpine hut and a modern forage harvester. We then focus on livestock and their treatment – from breeding and husbandry to slaughter. The next thematic area is dedicated to agricultural machinery and includes a historic Lanz Bulldog tractor, a combine harvester and a prototype of a field robot. Their field of application – crop cultivation – follows in the next thematic area. At the centre of the exhibition hall in a darkened, partially mirrored room, visitors can watch a large atmospheric projection of a wheat field over the course of a year. At the far end of the exhibition, brewing kettles, a model of a brewery and a steam oven await. And the interactive food shelf provides food for thought on abundance and scarcity in the modern world.
