The cabinet of art and natural history (Kunst- und Naturalienkammer) was created by August Hermann Francke in 1698. Today this collection is regarded as the only fully preserved cabinet of curiosities dating from the Baroque age. [German]
The appeal of this chamber is that it was designed for school purposes and not for just impressing its visitors.
