About the museum
The Biological Museum is a merger of the Botanical museum and the Museum of Zoology. It is part of the department of Biology, within the Faculty of Natural Sciences.
There are c. 12 million specimens of plants and animals at the Museums. This material has been assembled during the last three centuries.
The collections are now made accessible to researchers all over the world by comprehensive databases. Material is also frequently sent on loan. In addition, both scientists and amateurs are welcome, after appointment, to visit the Museums for studies.
