The exhibition Paasisaqarusuppunga, Science and Society – officially opened in 2013. The exhibition ties the building together and inspires the visitor to explore the architectural landscape while learning about the history of science in Greenland starting with the Danish cleric and Naturalist Otto Fabricius. It displays his outstanding work as a humanist and scientist that was the basis of the world-famous Fauna Groenlandica, published 1790. It also displays the “Plankton Cloud” which creates an impressive view into the otherwise invisible microworld of the sea and the shell of the world´s biggest bivalve, that lived approximately 83 million years ago.
