Natural History Museum of Bern
The Natural History Museum of Bern is a museum that is located in the capital of Switzerland, Bern. It works closely with the University of Bern in its research and teaching. More than 100,000 people visit the museum each year.
The Burgergemeinde of Bern owns the museum. The Burgeremeinde is a corporation in Switzerland. It is comprised of all individuals who are residents of the Burgergemeinde, typically by having inherited the citizenship. It doesn’t matter where they were born or where they live now. The Burgergemeinde usually holds and administers the village’s common property for the community members. The museum was established in 1832. It is located in the Kirchenfeld quarter, on Bernastrasse, in a building that was put up in the early 1930s. It was opened in 1936, and it has been added onto and expanded a lot since then. Before that point, the exhibits were kept in a building on Hodlerstrasse that was built in the late 1870s. That building was demolished in 1936. Even earlier yet, the contents were kept in the library gallery of a former college building.
The museum is famous for its collection of more than 220 life-sized dioramas, and it has preserved animals from all over Switzerland, Asia, and Africa. It also has a collection of Alpine region minerals, samples of gold found at different locations around Switzerland, meteorites, and a large number of invertebrates. It also has the biggest collection of animal bones and skeletons in Switzerland. If you are having a great time just sightseeing and exploring the natural scenery of the Alpine region of Switzerland, then why not get a more in-depth look by visiting the Natural History Museum of Bern? You can really get an up-close look at all the interesting specimens – flora, fauna, and rock – that Switzerland’s Alpine region has.
