Kulturama conveys knowledge and science about mankind in a way that is understandable to all.

The Kulturuma Museum of Man documents, explains and illustrates the evolution of animals and men, the biology of men and aspects of the cultural history from the civilization of mankind.

The museum consists of five exhibition areas. The exhibition "Where we come from" shows the evolution of life and humans back to early cultures. The exhibition "Who we are" focuses on the course of human life and the bodily functions. "How we learn" is dedicated to human learning, memory and learning strategies. In the "Discovery trail", hands-on stations are available for active engagement with evolution, prehistory and the human body.

The fifth area consists of a special exhibition changing annually. Here, in-house productions, external exhibitions or co-productions with other museums and institutions are presented. Currently, the special exhibition "HEALTH – 7000 Years of the Art of Healing" and the temporary exhibition "Experience Room EAR", both in English and German are presented.
