In this second part we’re going to explore the Historical and National Museum.
If you didn’t read my first post about Santiago, check it —–> here.
The Museum of Natural History of the University of Santiago de Compostela integrates research, education and scientific dissemination.
The museum has two floors. Let’s find out what you can find there.
- All about the ground
- Molluscs “collection roll”
- Invertebrates – plants
- Invertebrates – animals
#2 Global terrestrial biodiversity:
- Biomes and fauna worldwide
#3 Temporary exhibitions
The collections of this museum have been shaped since the mid-nineteenth century, mostly with contributions from professors of the University of Santiago de Compostela, scientists and naturalists, as well as individuals and institutions.
Its organization in the general databases, which can be consulted on this portal, is by large taxonomic groups, in order to expedite and facilitate access to the documentation of the units. Thus, in the same general collection are included copies of historical and current collections, although in the archives and warehouses of the museum, each original collection maintains its own identity.
Visits to permanent exhibitions can be done with guidance or without guidance assistance.
For guided tours, prior reservation will be necessary. It is also recommended to make prior reservations in the case of group visits without a guide, to avoid problems of gauging.
You can also take a virtual walk around the museum – here.
