Established in 1888, the collection became famous in 1930, when the remains of a 30000-year old woolly rhinoceros were brought to the museum. It is the only perfectly preserved specimen of that extinct animal in the world. The original collection was divided into three sections, and this one became the city's only Natural History Museum. The permanent exhibitions focus on molluscs, minerals and fossils, and prehistoric megafauna. Especially interesting is their exhibition on amber. The temporary exhibitions are always fun too. This may not be the most impressive natural history museum you’ve ever seen, but its constantly growing and worth checking out. Check the museum website for upcoming events.

  • Old school natural history museum (cabinets of minerals, stuffed animals etc), made special by a great wooly rhinoceros display and a surprisingly nice mini-zoo/aquarium. Happy-looking reptiles and endangered tamarin monkeys in incongruous office block setting. Great place to escape the cold to a tropical mini-jungle.

  • Good place, they have marine and river tank fish, snakes, lizards, 3 monkeys, stuffed birds and animals, a small waterfall, a collection of fossil shells and stones. Price 18 pln.

  • This is quality natural history museum with a few unique exhibits including a very well preserved wooly rhinoceros and some mammoths.

  • Świetne muzeum! Jestem zachwycona tym miejscem. Choć z zewnątrz takie niepozorne, to w środku bardzo pozytywnie zaskakuje. Oldschool'owy styl, środki multimedialne są sprowadzone do minimum, duże sale, dobrze zaplanowana trasa zwiedzania, kompetentny i cierpliwy przewodnik. Ogromne bogactwo żywych zwierząt i eksponatów martwej natury. Na plus również pomysłowość tych, którzy projektowali muzeum, każda sala jest w innym klimacie, pasującym do tego, co w niej się znajduje. Byłam w muzeum z grupą małych dzieci i z pewnością poleciłabym to miejsce na tego typu wypady.

  • Ciekawe miejsce dla dorosłych i dzieci,można dużo dowiedzieć się o przyrodzie
