Natural History Museum

Short facts

The 10,000-year-old natural and cultural history of the Leipzig region is presented here in zoological, botanical, geological and archaeological collections.

The museum is about 100 years old and collects, researches and preserves the natural treasures of Northwest Saxony in the fields of geology, biology and archaeology. The presentation of the problems of environmental protection and nature conservation is an important focus.


The collections include valuable evidence of extinct plant and animal species. Various exhibitions inform guests about geological epochs, the development of cultural landscapes and the habitats of Northwest Saxony. Staff and museum educators impart extensive knowledge of nature and the environment, especially to children and young people.

The permanent exhibition is currently only open to individual visitors at weekends, on public holidays and during school holidays. During the week, it is reserved for museum educational activities and groups. Groups are welcome to register by telephone.

The exhibitions in the Museum of Natural History are also designed for children.
