Permanent Exhibition
Zoological Museum

The University of Zurich received 50 spectacular fossils, the masterpieces, from the Sauriermuseum Aathal as a long-term loan. The Zoological Museum of the UZH now presents these impressive objects, that can be seen as natural works of art, in a newly constructed treasure vault.
