As important a scientific institute as it is a public attraction, this museum holds exhibits including rocks and minerals from around the globe, many on permanent display. Look out for the section on prehistoric Krapina man, one of the most significant of its kind. The zoological collection features the fauna of Croatia. There’s a botanical section and herbaria too. The museum also publishes the scientific journal ‘Natura Croatica’.
