Scientific Collections

Scientific CollectionsThe Museum of Nature South Tyrol has assumed responsibility for the central documentation of observations and the collection of data on Natural History in South Tyrol.

Collections serve on one hand as a store from which a museum can select suitable exhibits for display. On the other, collections also serve as important sources of material for research in the field of Natural History. With its computer-supported administration and proper preservation of such objects (minerals, fossils, beetles, butterflies, plants, etc.), the Museum makes a major contribution to expanding our knowledge of the nature world in our region.
