About the Zoological Museum
The museum closed on September 23, 2019 for renovation work, its reopening is scheduled for 2023.
Located at the heart of the Strasbourg University campus, the Zoological Museum first saw the light of day in the 18th century with elements from the Natural History collection of Jean Hermann. Constantly enriched, this collection is currently one of the richest in France.
Strolling through the vast galleries, imagination takes off at a gallop, naturalists are delighted and children are amazed. You enter a fascinating world evoking the Arctic, Antarctic or the Andes. Moving on and conjuring up other climes, multitudes of birds, insects, tortoises, lizards, starfish and kangaroos give you a rich and colourful panorama of animal diversity.
In addition to its natural heritage conservation vocation, the museum also makes the collections, which include numerous reference specimens or types, available to scientists from all over the world.
Discovery workshops, events, activities and tours invite the youngest visitors to discover surrounding or more distant environments via the fauna that lives in them.
