Natural History Museum Giacomo Doria

Natural History Museum Giacomo Doria is one of the Genoese’s most loved museums, well known in the international scientific arena for the wealth of its materials from all over the world.

The current location, inaugurated in 1912, houses the public exhibition on the first 2 floors, while the other 2 floors are used as offices, laboratories, a library and study collections (zoological, botanical, mineralogical and geo-paleontological).

In the exhibition itinerary on the ground floor, the large fossil skeleton of the Ancient Italian Elephant, the rich series of mammals, particularly valuable for marsupials, and the room with the diorama of the African Savannah is worth mentioning.

A hall is dedicated to temporary exhibitions on naturalistic topics, while conferences and documentary screenings are held in the amphitheater.
