Established in 1867, the museum complex is known throughout the global scientific community for its four million specimens from all over the world.
Its collections of high scientific value are primarily zoological, but also include plants, minerals, rocks and fossils.
Deserving of a special mention are the ornithological collection, the collection of mammals, the rich collections of insects and the room dedicated to palaeontology.
