With the Evolutioneum vision, Hamburg and Universität Hamburg are aiming to fill a gap in the city’s museum landscape. The goal is to rebuild the natural history museum destroyed in the Second World War into an innovative panorama of biodiversity and evolution research. The new, centrally located institution will be the latest landmark in a city devoted to academic pursuit. At the moment, CeNak is being incorporated into the renowned Leibniz Association. At the end of June 2020, the Joint Science Conference affirmed the merger of CeNak and the Zoological Research Musuem Alexander Koenig in Bonn as well as the creation of a new Leibniz institute for the analysis of the evolution of biodiversity. During the coalition negotiations in Hamburg in May, the Social Democrats and the Greens specifically advocated for the establishment of a modern natural history museum with the resources to further develop collections and the space for exhibitions.
