The Museum's goal is to disseminate knowledge of nature and its diversity. Our mission is to be a center of knowledge and a meeting-place for both experts and the public.
Our activities are based on our scientific collections, which include near 10 million specimens. The majority of our 300 staff work in the Research Department. Research at the Museum follows four themes: The Changing Earth, Ecosystems and Evolution, Biodiversity, and Man and the Environment.
Our exhibits and Cosmonova offer new experiences and discoveries to our visitors, and every year it is our pleasure to welcome over 700,000 visitors of all ages. We value quality, openness, clear organization and our sense of common purpose. Sharing our knowledge gives us motivation and inspiration in our daily our work.
