Description :

  • The museum was established in 1860 and new acquisitions were added to the original nucleus of the museum, formed from the Aldrovandi, Cospi and Marsili collections.

  • Just inside the front door are these animals ranging from a rhinoceros to a polar bear.

  • There are many other displays here particularly heads of other animals from the safari and upstairs is a scene quite characteristic of the savannah showing 3 busts of lions lying in the grass.
