The special exhibition is dedicated to the millennia-old history of sky observation.

The special show "Star Seekers" is dedicated to the millennia-old history of sky observation and illuminates "star moments" in the history of astronomy. Both the special significance of the sun for the people of the Bronze Age and the amazing calculation skills of early advanced civilisations play an important role. Historical astronomical instruments illustrate the inventiveness of early astronomers on the hunt for new discoveries. An extraordinary technical highlight can be viewed up close: the 1:1 model of the "Philae" landing unit, which was able to land on a comet for the first time in 2014 as part of the Rosetta mission. The end result is the realisation that looking up at the starry sky connects people across epochs and cultures.
 
The special exhibition was initiated by the Förderverein Arche Nebra e. V. and was financially supported by the state of Saxony-Anhalt. At the same time, it is a cooperation with the Saxony-Anhalt State Office for the Preservation of Monuments and Archaeology.
