The museum presents a trip to the North- and South Poles and pictures the animal world. The exhibition not only deals with this theme in a classical way, but also offers a reflection on the future of these ecosystems.

The Museum presents Carl Spitteler (1845-1924), the Swiss writer who was awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1919. To commemorate this centenary, the museum is dedicating an exhibition to it and is taking part in a series of events organised throughout the Bernese Jura this year.

At a time when citizens are mobilising due to climate change, millions of hectares of forest are disappearing every year. To make the consequences understandable for the public, the  Botanical Garden of Neuchâtel presents tropical plants and trees in its greenhouses and in the open air along a route of drawings by the French botanist Francis Hallé (1938).
