This museum specializes in fauna and its evolution throughout history. Its collections include conches, several assemblages of insects, and over 290 artifacts from mammals, some of which are today extinct. The absolute highlights are the skeleton of a common minke whale, an elephant and a giraffe. The museum also hosts a collection of primate skulls.
There are two ways to enter the museum, one through the official museum entrance, at Ulisse Aldrovandi street and the other from the Bioparco (Zoo), next to which it is situated.
Unfortunately, while there are signs on nearly every displayed item, providing additional information, all inscriptions on them are in Italian.
