Drag the map and zoom in or out for the best view of the surroundings.

In the Museum of Natural History you can explore more than ten permanent galleries. But you see only a small part of the wealth of the Institute. The collections include some 37 million specimens, and among the top ten in the world. You will find rocks, minerals, fossils, insects, shells, recent vertebrates, anthropological and prehistoric collections on display and much more.

The iguanodons are the biggest stars of the museum, but you can discover animals from the last ice age, hominids, whales, polar animals, etc.. In addition, there are two halls about dinosaurs and evolution
respectively. Not to be missed!

The museum organizes regular visits behind the scenes. Very interesting!
