A quarter of a million visitors have toured the Humboldt Lab since 2021. To mark this anniversary, Prof Dr Julia von Blumenthal, President of Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin, and Dr Anna-Lisa Dieter, Curator at the Humboldt Lab, jointly welcomed the 250,000th visitor. Andreas Erlacher from South Tyrol was visibly delighted to receive an honorary ticket for the Long Night of Science on 22 June 2024 and a golden pangolin - the 3D reprint of one of the most popular exhibits in the opening exhibition "After Nature". The 60-year-old teacher from Italy is currently on a tour of Germany and had come to the Humboldt Forum with his wife specifically to see the Humboldt Lab.

The exhibition "After Nature" will be on display there until next summer. The Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin and the Berlin University Alliance (BUA) will present a new exhibition on the element of water in the Humboldt Lab in autumn 2025. This exhibition, curated by Anna-Lisa Dieter and the other members of the team, will once again focus on research, for example on the properties of water, its functions as a catalyser or carrier substance, infrastructures for or through water and its ecological, political, social or cultural significance.
