The Natural History Museum Potsdam is based in the building that once served as the House of Nobles in the Brandenburg region of Zauche (Ständehaus der Zauche). The building is part of a precious historic architectural ensemble and was built by Georg Christian Unger in 1770. It was damaged during the Second World War and rebuilt in the 1970s and early 1980s. In 2005 the baroque front garden was added. The building is recognized a perfect example of the cultural usage of listed houses.
