The Natural History Museum Basel is one of the oldest museums in Switzerland. This year we celebrate its 200th birthday.
Travel with us through the centuries and get to know those people who have shaped the Basel Natural History Museum. What were their motivations for collecting and researching? Why did they leave their life's work to the museum and what expectations did they have of it? The exhibition tells of the great passion with which generations of collectors have looked after the treasures of nature and preserved them for the future. Their great reverence for life on our planet and their enormous commitment are the basis for the rich history of the Basel Museum of Natural History. On the occasion of the 200th anniversary, we honor this priceless achievement with a trip to bygone eras.
