Museos - Natural History Museum


Have you ever seen a sperm whale hanging over your head? Did you know an elephant actually walks on the tip of its toes? Do you have any idea what a two-headed Siamese calf looks like? And did you know the skeleton of a mouse is composed of more bones than the one of a sperm whale?


In this 3-storey building you will be immersed in a world of natural history artefacts, each of them telling their own particular story.


The oldest skeleton dates back to the Ice Age. It’s the 120,000-year-old skull of a primal bovine animal. Its main span is absolutely unique in the world as its one of the largest of its kind. The biggest skull you’ll find at MUSEOS is one of a sperm whale, the smallest of a pipistrelle bat.
