Civico Museo di Storia Naturale di Trieste is a natural history museum in Trieste, northern Italy. It contains several collections, including more than two millions botanical, zoological, mineralogical, geological, and paleontological specimens.
The museum was opened as a zoological museum in 1846 with the name "Gabinetto Zoologico Zootomico" and set in Palazzo Biserini in Piazza Hortis in 1852, where has coexisted with the Civic Library and the literary museums until 2010. In 1855, under the protectorate of Archduke Ferdinand Maximilian, the museum was renamed "Civico Museo Ferdinand Maximilian". Through many donations and as a result of several international expeditions, the museum has developed a range of exhibits. While keeping a zoological address, it now has flora, geological, and paleontological specimens and a large library containing works in various languages.
In 2010, the museum moved to the new headquarter in via Cumano, next to Civico Museo della Guerra per la Pace Diego de Henriquez, with whom is part of an only museum center. Discover how to plan a Trieste trip in just a few steps with Inspirock's itinerary builder.

  • I was very pleased with the museum and the very nice staff talked to us and surely when I get here you will visit it because you have something to see and learn. I was really excited
  • It would be advisable to show the ticket office opening times , more so than the museum opening times . That way one could actually enter the museum . Two and a half hours before it closes, seems a little bit long for me .
