Natural History Museum Neuchâtel

A museum to win over younger and older naturalists alike

After a visit to Neuchâtel’s Museum of Natural History, you’ll be an unrivalled expert on the creatures that live in the forests of the Jura mountains. The dioramas act as a backdrop for showcasing the mammals and birds in their natural habitat, giving new life to the otherwise immobile residents of the museum. Or perhaps you’d prefer to find out which dinosaurs used to live in our region or whether the Alps are continuing to grow?
