A Tropical Rainforest at Biosphäre Potsdam

Happy Museum Monday! Today’s pick isn’t technically a museum, but it includes museum-like exhibits so I’m going to let it count. We visited the ‘Bisophäre Potsdam’ a couple years ago when we were living in Berlin. It’s located in the city of Potsdam, in the state of Brandenburg, which is right next door to Berlin.
