As an interactive museum for culture and science, in line with its educational mission and inter-disciplinary approach, it is Museon’s ambition to continue to inspire people to discover the world. Its impressively large and varied collection was assembled with a view to educational use and comprises no fewer than 273,000 items in the fields of culture and sciences. It aims to introduce the widest possible public to culture and science and, to this end, provides an accessible and attractive learning environment focused on active exploration and direct experience.

The Museon has used the 17 Sustainable Development Goals formulated by its partner, The United Nations, as the starting point for One Planet. Themes include: over-fishing, water pollution, energy, refugees, climate change and discrimination. The goals are addressed in 17 displays, using text, pictures, interactivity and items from the collection.
One Planet is an exciting and fun-filled educational exhibition with many interactive elements offering visitors an entertaining way to find out how we can work together to ensure a healthy and sustainable future for our planet.

The Museon acts as a platform for community organizations, enterprises and government departments wishing to focus attention on social issues relevant to the Museon’s mission.
